About Me

I am a wood artist residing in Tuftonboro, New Hampshire and St. John, US Virgin Islands. For over nine years, I have continually pushed the boundaries of my art and artistic process with a focus primarily on salvaged wood indigenous to New Hampshire, the Caribbean, and California. Each piece of raw wood is hand selected for unique grain pattern, color and texture. Through my process, each shape emerges – and comes to life – echoing the beauty of nature.

Artist Statement

In my youth I was always attracted to wood working. Between my first bowl which was hand-carved at age 13, almost fifty years passed before turning my second on a lathe under the tutelage of maestro Avelino Samuel in St. John, USVI.


After a "brief" interruption of academics, raising a family, and a career in the financial sector that spanned 50 years, I have now immersed myself in the art of wood turning and hollowing. Through my study of the tools and techniques of wood turning, my skills have evolved from starting with a simple blank and turning a traditional bowl, to being able to source unusual raw wood, chainsaw the raw wood into a workable shape, and create turned or hollowed art forms using a Powermatic lathe.


My pieces are found in private collections around the globe. Select tableware items are shipped exclusively to Chef Thomas Keller for dinner service at The French Laundry. My work is featured at  Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery in Sandwich, New Hampshire and is also shown in an annual charity exhibit benefiting the Tuftonboro Free Library's literacy efforts and capital campaign.
