  • Q&A With This Artist

    A: I use eastern hardwoods, much of it worked from local logs. My bentwoods are built up in thin layers of steamed laminations.

    A: People have depended on trees from our beginnings, and I am part of that continuum.

    A: Wood is wonderful! I'll never get to all the ideas I have
