I have been doing Intarsia for over 20 yrs, oops i guess that dated me lol. It all started when my mom wanted to work in the workshop with my dad, he was an avid woodworker. She had come across a couple Intarsia patterns and fell in love with it. I thought if she could do it so can I, after all wood was my fav subject in school. So here I am! I lucked out in `97 when I met my partner who ownes a kitchen cabinet company and now have everything I need. Most people who do Intarsia, leave it natural, but because we can make a kitchen in any colour, I decided to incorporate in my art. All the wood has been recycled from the kitchens we have made. I decided to expand from Intarsia, to chinese symbols, to silhouettes, to clocks and anything else a customer may want, such as cartoon characters and team logos for the community sports teams.
