I like wood for its color, grain, beauty, and feel.   I have made many things from wood:            

Dog houses, Tree houses, Adult houses         

Cabinets, Furniture, Railings            

Bowls, Vessels, Sculpture 

I use wood found near my home, on Vashon Island, and at the lumber yard.   I have turned wood into shapes from Southwest Pottery and Native American Baskets; elemental shapes like cones, columns, eggs, and boats.  

I have carved, burned, colored, sandblasted, bleached, polished, and finished wood.   I have used wood to express ideas about the natural world; about climate, weather, flora, fauna, and geography.  

I like the process of working wood, and the ideas that come to me along the way.
