"My artwork is about collaboration with nature, using naturally formed hardwood, which is found and harvested in the local forests that surround my home and studio in southern NH. This wood presents itself in an array of shapes and forms suggesting possibilities for furniture and sculpture. I am attracted to the architecture of nature as a compelling dance of control and chaos. My art is about cooperating with the tree shapes I find to create a balance of form, function, and craftsmanship. Color and surface design play an important part of my expression."
