Part of the pleasure of my work is knowing that my work is growing with people's lives in positive ways and creating a life of its own. If you ever buy one of my pieces I love to hear about the experiences it lives through.

A lot of my inspiration comes from my conflicting love of nature and wilderness with my inner city heart. I have spent of most of my life split between major urban centers like Chicago and Shanghai with time in the pristine wilderness in some of the most remote places in the world. A grace can be found in both places that comes out in my work. If you have any questions or want a personalized piece please feel free to contact me.
