About the Artist:
“Discipline will set you free.” I live by that. I create my art by it. The process of transforming raw wood into beautiful vessels with just the right curves and proportions is satisfying and fulfilling. Shape is everything. Getting curves, intersections and proportions to all work together in just the right way is the goal, and the challenge.
I was a software developer for 25 years. To me, development was both analytic and creative. I built the puzzles I designed. People almost always looked blankly at me when I told them it was a very creative process. I think visually so I always saw my systems like people see things. I like the transition from virtual to physical creative arts, though. People can actually see, touch, and hold what I create.
