I have been working with wood for 30 years and have been woodturning for over 20. I’m basically self-taught, but have been fortunate enough to have taken classes from some of the world’s best woodturners in David Ellsworth, Stuart Batty, and Betty Scarpino.
My inspiration comes from the wood itself. Every piece is different in color, texture, scent, and character. The shape of the pieces are equally as important as the wood. Whether they are the classical shapes from the past or the natural-edge pieces that warp into their own shape, my goal is to make them all pleasing to the eye and touch.
