Here is an artist that does several things very well.
“With the support of my wife and family, I’ve settled into midlife as an artist and craftsman, and my wood lot and work shop in the Thompson woods has become the center of my life. There, I’ve built up a small woodworking operation, harvesting and sawing native woods which I use to make wooden objects from utilitarian to artistic and all the while pursuing my dream of being an artist through painting, drawing, carving and photography.
I cut and use the woods I have, and in these forests that means pine and the oaks. Maple, birch, hickory, ash, beech and hemlock grow here and I’ve sawn and sampled all of them.
As a woodworker I’ve become very good at fashioning box joints of old and this is the cornerstone of my joinery.
As an artist I enjoy figurative work, figures and faces are recurring themes.
One of a kind items are my forte, I will gladly consider any opportunity.”
