Announcement   △ Hello! Due to the busy holiday season, I am backlogged with handmade orders however, any orders placed before December 18th will make it by Christmas in the US via First Class Mail.

△ Welcome to my Totem Color Blocks collection, a meditation on the power of color and the beauty of wood. Using hand formed reclaimed wood, these pieces are inspired by dramatic landscapes and historical art color theories. The purity and graphic nature of the forms captures a tribal aesthetic and communicates a contemporary folk sensibility while honoring nature.

I design, saw from raw reclaimed wood (not unsustainable wood from China), drill, sand and paint each piece. I mix my paints with pure powder pigments for vibrant saturated color and visual intensity.

This small piece is many things at once: simple, unique, charming, calming & a fun pop of color. Pamela was away on vacation when I placed my order; her kindness & promptness in reaching out to me was above & beyond my expectations. I received the wall hanging within days of her return --- an excellent experience all around.

About

\ˈtō-təm\ A venerated emblem or revered symbol

For the last ten years I've been working in fine art object conservation for museums and private art collectors and that work has informed everything Totem Color Blocks is based upon. One of the skills used extensively in conservation is breaking down colors and complicated patterns into their most essential components in order to match perfectly a surface on an object. Getting dialed into that process is a very meditative and rewarding practice and has made me hypersensitive to the dynamics and power of color.

The color combinations I use are derived from dramatic landscapes and art historical color theories and movements. I’m also inspired by Native tribal crafts and structures. The visual simplicity and linearity of my work expresses my love of clarity in all things and a focused, reflective sensibility.
