Artist Statement

Each step of every project I design and build is considered my masterpieceā€¦ because I want the finished product to reflect the quality and creativeness of my work. I study each piece to get ideas and details that will evolve in my future creations. Creativeness is an ongoing lifetime learning processā€¦ I must continually be my own biggest critic and always be very happy and passionate with what I am doing if I expect my work to continually evolve and improve... If a person cannot be satisfied with their own work they most certainly cannot expect others to appreciate every step that has gone into creating it.

Biography

I am a Louisiana resident born in New Orleans and lived here all my life... until August 29th., 2005 when hurricane Katrina flooded and destroyed the Lakeview home where my wife and I lived for many years. We moved to another home in Prairieville, La., with enough land for a woodworking studio. From there I was able to build my new studio workshop and slowly start replacing my lifetime accumulation of woodworking tools.
I have been working with wood since around the age of 12 and have always been fascinated with the beauty of wood and its tremendous varieties, colors, grain patterns, textures and finishing capabilities. Wood can be shaped, cut, sculpted, carved and molded into a countless number of designs only limited by a persons imagination and creativeness.
