“When I’m not in the shop turning wood with chisels in my hands, I’m in the art studio with paint brushes in my hands instead”!
Thank you for your interest in my work. I was born in the early 60s and I guess some of that hippie era indelibly left its mark. Whether it is on my unique embellished style of woodturning, or on canvas; I love to create with juicy, vibrant, harmonious colors.
In 2002, after leaving a 25 year career in graphic design, I began turning wood and my love of painting resurfaced shortly thereafter. I love turning ideas into art! Some ideas are best conveyed with works in wood, while others as paintings on canvas or board. Every painting starts with a positive word spelled out with medium, yes every painting begins with love!
When you collect my art, know that you are getting a high quality art piece. Each original artwork starts and ends with artist quality paints, materials and mediums. Any prints that you collect at shows and galleries are archival quality as well. Since 2004, my works have been collected internationally, are in print and on display in corporate art installations.
I live and create in beautiful Sonoma County California and love it here! Together with my talented wife, a rescued dog named Ziggy, 3 rescued cats and a handful of great friends – we find life is pretty spectacular here!
