Artist Statement

As a woodworker, I have been making fine household wood pieces for over 30 years; currently, I'm concentrating on band saw bowls. My designs are original and made with fine craftsmanship. As a sculptor, my most recent interest is in creating re-arrangeable art: assemblies of sculptural pieces that viewers move around to create their own artistic compositions. I believe that wood deserves respect and care when I transform a once-living tree to a piece for someone's home. Currently, I exhibit at Terasol Café and Gallery at 5010 Connecticut Ave NW in Washington, DC, and at Strathmore Mansion in Rockville, MD. Previously, I have exhibited in shows sponsored by the American Craft Council (Baltimore 2014) Washington Woodworkers Guild, the Creative Crafts Council, and in galleries such as the Maryland Federation of Art in Annapolis, Partners Gallery in Bethesda, MD (solo show), and Peirce Mill in Washington, DC. In 2014 I will have two solo shows in Rockville, MD.
