Creating utilitarian art to enrich people's life.

Having a limited space to work is a common issue for us Makers.
In 2011 I moved from Charlotte N.C. to Chicago IL. and with that the size of my working space reduced to a 5th of its size. That is when I decided to stop building furniture and focus on a lifelong dream of creating Art.
At first, I spent at least a couple of years experimenting and trying to make something with just about any kind of wood I could get my hands on. As time went on I began refining my techniques of both shaping and finishing wooden objects.
As friends and family learned that I was having so much fun in my tiny shop, they started placing orders and telling other people what I was doing. Eventually I came back to ETSY and started offering quality made objects for everyone to enjoy.
During the summer I take part in art shows around the Chicagoland area, where I offer hand-carved sculptures and wall art pieces.
I take pride when I say that 99% of the material I use comes from locally reclaimed trees that I get from friends or tree service companies.
