I'm inspired by long hikes roaming the forests of upstate New York and now Northern California. Currently working with reclaimed lumber and driftwood -- if I can incorporate getting into the water while on the search for a new resource, all the better!
I look for the oldest and most weather-worn pieces of found wood. Stripping away the gray layers of material to reveal the grain and natural colors, I see the character of the piece and envision it into a new object. I try to maintain the integrity of the original by incorporating all pieces of the wood into the final design. When this is not possible, my artistic objective is to combine other woods and materials to present the piece as a pleasingly designed work.
