Growing up, I used to watch my father building all kinds of things. He loves to tinker and play with whatever he can, and that interest has certainly manifested itself in me. I focus on using recovered woods and recycled materials to create all my art. Bringing something new out of something old and tired is a real joy.
I have always been creative, but that particular trait really exploded after moving to the mountains in Colorado. Everything was so BIG, and it really instilled a feeling of humanity in me. I started creating “things” as gifts for friends and loved ones. Slowly (and I mean slowly) I found styles and mediums I enjoyed. I have since lived all over the country, from Portland, OR to New Haven, CT to Charleston, SC to my current residence in Bozeman, MT. I just need to look around to be amazed by what people are doing, and that is where I find the inspiration I need to create…

My path to art has certainly been an interesting one, more by coincidence than by pursuit. I consider my schooling to be framing homes three stories off the ground swinging hammers. Learning how to use woodworking tools has definitely been the foundation for my craft. Milling all the pieces at my mountainside shop from pallets or old fence posts, or anything else I can dig up, really lets me feel involved in the process from start to finish.
I like making things that are a bit cheeky and fun, not always requiring intense scrutiny. If I would hang it up or use it myself, then I’m happy.
