Original Art and Custom Furniture



I work in a variety of mediums, but wood has been my focus for the last few years. I love the warmth of wood and its inherent beauty. In some of my work, I try to highlight the interplay of wood's organic grain structure and the more rigid geometric forms we often associate with lumber. In other work, I create three-dimensional collages using found objects; the goal is not only to create visually interesting work but also tell a story and provoke thought. I have a number of pieces available for sale. I am also happy to discuss commission work to create a project with your vision in mind.


In addition to fine art, I also make custom furniture. I love the idea of making something both beautiful and functional. I currently am a member of the East Side Woodshop, an artist collective located at 620 E. 8th Street in Lawrence, Kansas. In addition to a full woodshop, the collective mills its own local lumber. Being a member of this space gives me access to an extensive variety of lumber to fit customer needs. Please contact me to discuss your next project.
