I am a conscious designer, and recognize the importance of using renewable resources and sustainable practice. I have created a line of unique, sculptural, functional objects: various sized vessels, cooking utensils, and other accent pieces. Woods used are maple, cherry, oak, mahogany, walnut, and sapele; all reclaimed from a boat builder in Wilmington, NC.
I have earned a BFA in Woodworking at ECU, in addition to a 6-month concentration at Penland School of Craft, both in North Carolina. I studied Sculpting Green Lumber using Chainsaws with Howard Werner and Sculptural Furniture with Kurt Nielsen, and Brent Skidmore.
