High Quality Work
I try to find local wood and wood that is sustainably harvested. I pick wood that may have imperfections, but this helps to keep the cost lower and it supports my belief that all living things hold beauty because of their imperfections. My job is to help bring out this innate beauty.
Since I can remember, I have engaged with nature and have been an active participant with the natural world. I worked my way through college as a carpenter apprentice as I combined my love of people with my love of nature and creativity.
I have worked in the mental health field as a licensed therapist most of my career, while taking furniture making classes in my spare time. As my skill level increased, people began to ask me to make furniture for them.
VALUE without Compromise
Longevity of Our World!
My work reflects my love of trees by choosing to use reclaimed wood, wood sustainably harvested and incorporating environmentally friendly finishes.
Because of this, some of the wood used in the pieces I create have imperfections or flaws. But when joined together they add character, beauty and uniqueness, representing for us what is possible when we combine our talents, individuality and appreciation of the beauty in our diversity.
Together we are stronger and make the world a better place!
