If it can be imagined, it can be realized in wood…
Turning a piece of wood into something that brings joy and wonder to others is something that gives me a great sense of enjoyment and accomplishment. The world is full of inspiration, and ideas come in all shapes and forms…whether it’s something I see, or a conversation with a friend, I try to incorporate it all into my work.
Realism is something that I strive for in my wood carvings, even down to
the smallest detail. When I carve, I try to tap into the joy of motion and life, while enhancing the natural warmth of wood as a medium. I work hard to push the limits of relief carving. I love the challenge of achieving the maximum amount of depth in a thin piece of wood, always trying to let light and air into the deep, dark places. I constantly strive to learn more about the art of woodcarving, so I can share this art with students and observers, alike.
