About

The earth has music for those who listen - Shakespeare...

-AspenSpirit... is a gallery of modern rustic accents for you home decor influenced by the Colorado rocky mountains, and their beloved trees, the aspen.

Living in the beautiful mountains of Colorado, and enjoying 4 months off a year allows me to seek outdoor hobbies to pass the long winters. In 2005 on one of my hikes, I took notice to a grove of twisted growth aspen that gave me some ideas on bringing the standing dead wood back to life to be something that would be artfull as well as functional.

I have been heavily influenced by all the rustic artists before me who relied on using the natural resources for their furnishings. You could say my style is rather simple where as the tree, the limb shapes, and their live edges are the soul of each piece.

My experience with hunting wood has taught me to choose wisely choosing standing dead specimens that are sturdy, and rich in character allowing me to create a piece of art that will stand the test of time.
