Conundrum: A riddle whose answer is or involves a pun. Did Webster really mean to indicate two nuns co-drumming? Language constructed into a three-dimensional definition. This play of words is habit forming.

"I have always had an affinity for wood and started turning in 1993. I became a full-time turner in 1998. I have had the good fortune to observe and learn from many fine wood artists.

The more I work with wood, the more I appreciate its nature: warm and tactile to the touch, beautiful grain, and yielding nature. At times, wood offers far less than I need—constraints, though, can bring new insights.

Inspiration surrounds me and flows from inside. Like a knotwork, the thoughts are interwoven and connected, starting deep within a turned form, flowing over the rim, circling back upon themselves, joining with other thoughts. As I work the wood, there is much to ponder. The wood offers, I receive, and we continue the weaving."
