My Artist Statement

I create “art” furniture combining a whimsical aesthetic sensibility with extensive
woodworking experience. Striving for a complicated, rich surface, I often use the end
grains of wood. I carefully choose my wood for grain pattern and strive for interesting
variations and color. In shaping the wood I enjoy finding natural surprises. The
surfaces are varied in color and grain, each piece a different intricate design. Among
my influences are Gaudi’s fantastic architectural sculptures, Wharton Eshrick’s
beautiful woodwork and Isaiah Zagar’s reuse of materials and busy surfaces. I believe
that everyday items should be art to be used and enjoyed. The newest pieces are an
evolving body of work; each piece leads to new ideas and a continuing growth in the
work. Some of the new work is pure sculptural.

My Location

I am located in Elkins Park, PA.
