How I discovered my love for the art of painting on wood.

It all started with an old pallet someone gave to me. I was determined to get it apart and spent hours in my garage that evening ripping the boards off, one by one with a hammer. Once I was finished, I lined the boards back up, and with spare boards, a hammer and nails I put it back together again. After that, I sanded the entire 24x36 inch board by hand and I finally had my first blank canvas, made from pallet wood.

The next day I went and bought my first can of stain, a couple paint samples and made my first pallet sign.

I decided I loved the look of the stain on the wood and truly enjoyed capturing each board's natural beauty. I knew wanted to keep this up so I acquired a few more free pallets and quickly discovered the first one I ever took apart, would forever be the easiest. It didn't take me long to learn that those things are no joke.

Over time I invested in new tools to help me along, and discovered more ways of acquiring different types of boards and wood. Within the last year, I've spent much of my time sawing boards apart, sanding them down and staining them with various shades of stain just to create the blank canvas I would be working on. At that point I move on to my favorite part and get to paint.

At this point in my life, i'm just searching for new ideas and new ways to display and promote my work.

    I'm 25 years old, living in White Lake, Michigan and I love all things art. I've been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember but just over a year ago I began focusing around the art of repurposing wood.
