About the Artist
For many years I was an IT Professional, and a wood hobbyist. I have always loved working with my hands and making things with wood such as book cases, coffee tables and chairs, but I was looking for a more creative outlet. About 10 years ago I started turning wood, with a bias toward art pieces vs utility. Like many things in life, wood turning is easy to get started, but takes years to master. One of the reasons I love wood turning is the infinite variety of pieces that are possible, and the challenge of maximizing the artistic potential of a given piece of wood or log. I am focusing on exploring color, complimentary materials (glass, metal, minerals, etc.), and surface embellishments in my art which has greatly expanded the breadth of my work.
