"My art had its start in the early eighties when as a struggling college student I started constructing basic furniture for my apartment. As time went by, I began giving away my work as gifts to friends and family. From there I started receiving requests for custom designed pieces. My work began to evolve from a fulfilling hobby into a part time business. Working with my hands and creating works of art, photography, jewelry, sculpture and furniture truly brings me fulfillment in life. Few things are more satisfying to me than to realize I am creating something for someone else to enjoy. I am self-taught, and have enjoyed the challenge of working with different mediums and techniques to design and construct my art and furniture. The Texas Hill Country is an inspiration for much of my photography and sculpture and its native materials have given me a varied palette to create my designs."
