I live on a wooded piece of land in upper Bucks County, PA. This was a deliberate action to live among the trees, the raw material of my passion. Being close to these giants has instilled a sense of respect and love for nature. My artistic view is most often toward the beauty of all things natural. My early years in Dad’s shop spurred an interest in woodworking that lasts to this day. We would make beautiful bird houses together. The smell of cutting walnut still takes me back to that wonderful time. I worked as a stone mason for many years. This experience taught me to look for balance in the total piece, and a work ethic to get the job done. I left my masonry job of 28 years to pursue my lifelong dream of working wood full time. I build custom furniture and artistic wood turning and carving. Teaching wood carving and wood turning in my studio is a very satisfying part of my business. Recently I have been exploring caves. This has been an avid pursuit which spills over into my artwork, resulting in critical acclaim. These pieces are in collections from coast to coast (Washington state to New York).
