Artist Statement

I am a self-taught woodworker, who is still learning the art of woodworking.

I started woodworking about 40 years ago. I am a self-taught woodworker, who is still learning the art of woodworking. I’ve been doing Intarsia for the last 15 years. It’s a very old art form that uses different colored woods and grain patterns to form a 3 dimensional picture. Each piece is cut and contoured to fit together like a jigsaw puzzle.

I do many different types of woodworking, including band saw boxes, furniture and furniture refinishing.
