I've been working in wood since I was 7 years old, building love & whimsy into every piece. Sculpted legs that seem to walk, crafted hardwood bodies, whimsical sweeps of contrasting species and rich colors of patinated copper. My pieces are sculptural, functional art; meant to be used, integrating art into everyday life, following the premise of the Arts & Crafts movement of the past century but with a contemporary aesthetic.
I work with domestic and exotic hardwoods complimenting them with patinated copper, brass & bronze. I “paint with patina”, integrating those "paintings" into furniture, boxes, frames and architectural woodwork.
The patinated metals are coated with 10 coats of clear polyurethane for longevity and functionality - resistant to water stains and normal wear & tear. The woods are finished in 5 coats of hand rubbed Tung oil for an extremely smooth and durable finish.
Contact me today to begin exploring your needs and your dreams about fine furniture... We will talk & I will sketch away to find just the right design, wood species, patina and feel for your home. See my PORTFOLIO link below to get your ideas rolling.
