As a native of rural Wisconsin, I have been working with indigenous woods and exotic timber species for many years. The distinctive features and special nature of wood are expressed through my three-dimensional works which I create using lathe turning, sculpting and mosaic techniques. I focus on expressing and developing my artistic talents through my innate understanding and respect of each species inherent beauty, and of its optimum form and function.
