My work has been influenced and cobbled together from a wide range of aspects from my life, work, and education. When I’m lucky, I’ll find a piece of wood so unique that it will dictate the way the finished piece will end up. The majority of the time I interpret notebooks full of scribbled drawings surrounded by arrows pointing to unrelated things and hand writing I can no longer read. I don’t know if I will ever figure out what “Spider!!?” was supposed to mean. I have the digital chops to get the ideas from the page to the computer. From there, a combination of power tools, hand tools, and gusto to bring the piece into the real world.
