Woodturning

Artist Statement

I enjoy taking a piece of wood and unleashing the beauty inside.

I have been working with wood for over 30 years, turning seriously since 2002. I am self-taught, continually attend forums, demonstrations, and other woodturning events to gather information and enhance my skills.

I enjoy making pens, bottle stoppers and bowls. Turning large bowls is my favorite. Most recently I have begun turning vases and other hollow forms, also I have started adding texture and/or color to some my pieces. However, I like the natural color of wood the best.

It is all about the wood.
