Creating one-of-a-kind furniture represents a unique blending of the beauty and elegance of the natural world and that created by the human imagination. Refining the concepts of grace and beauty is the challenge that I hold before me in my life's work.

Woodworking, especially one-of-a-kind furniture making, represents a rare combination of the technical skills necessary to work with wood, and the ideals of grace and beauty. Knowledge of material and confident hand skills used in making objects for generations to come is inspiring and provides a link with cabinetmakers of long ago. And with each piece I create, I commit to an honest, sensitive approach to my work.

Here you'll find images of selected pieces of work and discover something about my passion - the art of furniture design. Please feel free to contact me, and thank you for accepting my invitation.
