ARTIST STATEMENT

For more than a decade I've spent my professional and personal life drawing and fabricating. I've honed these raw talents into something marketable through education and calloused hands, designing and crafting heirloom-quality furniture and impactful retail displays for clients who recognize fine materials and superb construction practices.
