Acacia Wood, 8 x 6 x 6 inches

Creating vessels, purely decorative or narrative from illusions of basketweave and braided patterns, inspired by my interest and love of patterns in general. I have been a woodturner,and intrigued with the process since 1970. For the most part I am self-taught, and have focused on the expressiveness of hollow forms since the early 1990's. I presently reside in the beautiful Sonoran Desert, in Scottsdale, Arizona, with a 400 sq. ft. studio, adequate for my needs.

I have been a member of the American Association of Woodturners (AAW) since 1986 (#297), a former member of the Central New England Woodturners (CNEW) (1987-1994), and a member of the Arizona Woodturners Association (AWA) since 1993. Over the years I have demonstrated at many symposia and local organizations, nationally and internationally.

My work resides in numerous private collections, and several museums, including the Smithsonian, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Philadelphia Art Museum, and the Peabody-Essex Museum of Salem, Massachusetts.
