I derive my great­est sat­is­fac­tion as an artist from the sheer joy of doing – of being at one with the wood and releas­ing the beauty that is within. I love the chal­lenge of look­ing at and lis­ten­ing to a piece of wood and let­ting it reveal to me what it should become.

I have a tremen­dous sense of inner peace about my life and my work, and hope that those who touch the pieces of art I have cre­ated can feel this in the work itself.
