As long as I can remember, I have always needed an outlet for my creativity. I view the world around me in terms of special fit, color combinations, and natural form. I see value in what can be, rather than what is. Having recently retired after thirty-two years in education as a special education teacher, campus administrator, and district director, I now am able to give my full focus to the creative outlet of woodworking. The passion I put into each of my pieces is in direct reflection of the joy I experience in the creation process. I am deeply honored that the outcome of my love for wood and art can bring happiness to others.
