Artist Statement

I consider myself an Artist - Designer and Craftsman in the same breathe.
One proficiency supersedes the other, at any given time in any certain piece.

Always Innovative and Creative

For me, Wood is the most noble building material nature has to offer.

I’ve been designing and building custom wood furniture since 1972. My commissions are located from Manhattan, N.Y., to Newport Beach, Ca. My work ranges in design influence from ‘Classical-Traditional’ to ‘Contemporary Crafts’.

I attended art schools, in Bozeman, Mt., San Jose, Ca. and Flemington, N.J., from 1969-76.

The two mantras that describe my design thoughts are...
‘Keep it Simple’ and there are ‘No Limits’.

There is no such thing as a mistake, life is all a journey and I’m lucky to be able to do something I love to do.

I enjoy the qualities of most periods of style, all wood species, and all construction techniques.
I believe there is a place and time for everything.

I have been influenced by many people, periods and styles
...which has lead me to my latest design... Natural Lines.

For me Natural Lines... flows with the wood’s grain direction, it is pleasing to the eye, respectful of the materials, and fun to build.

I hope you enjoy my Natural Lines designs, as much as I enjoyed building them.
