"Coral Sea II" is the latest piece in a large body of work called "de La Mer." Growing up directly by the sea, the movement, dynamics, energy and elements of the sea has been a source of inspiration for me for over 20 years.

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.

As a woodturner and wood artist, the numerous bodies of work I have created over the years have been inspired from many different sources, each body different but having a common aesthetic: that the work is personal, unique and expressive in a non-verbal manner. Inspiration comes from life experiences, memories and the desire to "see" in a much broader context than merely visual imagery.
