Artist / Toy Maker

I've loved making art since I was a kid. When my wife and I had children, I became fascinated by what toys my kids would play with, and started to design toys for them. Later, I began documenting the projects on

I always thought it would be fun to have an Etsy shop, but I never had time to make multiples of my toys. In 2011, I did however, collaborate with Esty on quite a few projects, and they even sent a camera crew from New York to my house in Portland to shoot a How-Tuesday craft video. Now in 2021, my kids are older, and I finally have the time to create an Etsy shop of my own. I'm making all of the items in my art studio here in Portland. Let me know if you have any questions for requests. Thanks so much for visiting!
