My sculpture transforms nature into works of art. My intention is to draw the viewer into the natural colors, textures, and undulating interiors of the wood.

In public spaces my work brings sacredness and serenity to the space. Viewers are reconnected to nature. Winding shapes of branches rise upward; holes are filled with lathe-turned spheres; tree-wounds reveal imperfections integral to the form; and, balanced connections mindfully bring shapes together.
