Woodworking, Laminations, Jewelry

My passion is to create personal, unique, three-dimensional works of art with exotic hardwoods and brightly colored veneers that are hand dyed in my studio.  Currently I am creating jewelry, ceremonial bowls, and a complete line of tableware. 
Each piece is carefully constructed using the colors, grains and textures of the sustainable yield exotic and domestic hardwoods.  The natural beauty is then framed and accentuated with the dyed veneer.  It is this combination that sets my work apart and makes each piece unique. 
In addition to my own mountaintop studio, I am on the faculty of the Port Townsend School of Woodworking and I participate in a number of juried art shows throughout North America.
