At the age of 15, I began woodworking making picture frames for my artist father. Eventually, this led to designing and fabricating sales office display furniture and cabinetry for home builders and advertisers. This talent was soon recognized by interior design firms, furniture companies developing prototypes and individuals seeking custom furniture. For several years, I worked closely with Visual Display at Disneyland creating product display items throughout the Park.
As my clientele expanded, I began designing and fabricating custom cabinetry and furniture for specific needs. It was at this time I became fascinated with creating and showing my own furniture at venues like Art-A-Fair in Laguna Beach California, Design in Wood in Del Mar, California and various art galleries.
Most of my furniture incorporates smooth gentle lines like a wing, or a carved edge like an eroding cliff. I also like to include sliding tambour doors in some of my work. These doors or panels offer aesthetic movement, function and beauty while sliding effortlessly in a narrow arcing track.
I am always involved with various woodworking projects but my true passion is creating extremely finished, limited edition, collectable studio furniture.
