Artist Statement

Creating artwork is my favorite thing to do.


I started taking oil painting lessons when I was 10 and have done art all of my life. Now I carve with chainsaw, grinder and sander. Some of my pieces are 2D and some are 3D, I usually paint my work with spray paint. All of the wood I use is local discarded or unwanted. I am 54 now and would like to practice art full time upon retirement. I do not make a living off of my art,
I am a designer for an Engineering company.
