No paint. No stain. No dye. The images in my work are created using a technique called marquetry. This ancient art utilizes different species of wood (therefore colors and textures) to create these motifs.
I am honored to have this opportunity to introduce you to "Functional Art." I have an immense respect for nature, and feel blessed to have the ability to do what I absolutely love. I am passionate about what I do, and feel an intense bond with nature as I create my art – always knowing that I am merely rearranging the beauty that Mother Nature has already provided. I feel honored to give new life to the wood that I use when a new piece emerges. This new birth reflects my feelings for the harmony of life, love, and happiness. I believe that the tools I use are the means by which I leave a trace of my spirit on the soul of a tree.
Please contact me if you have any questions. Thank you!
