I have been turning wood for the last ten years. I specialize in pens and bottle stoppers. They are available for sale on etsy.com. Most of my work employs an abstract approach to segmenting wood. Combining a variety of woods to create a mixture of lines, colors, textures and shapes. Recently I have added casting original resin blanks , as well as clear cast blanks employing a variety of images, extending my turning palette.
I have been painting off and on for my entire adult life. The work is abstract, exploring for myself the general paths explored by the abstract expressionists of the fifties. I use primarily acrylics, working in a wet environment that allows for a mix of controlled and uncontrolled painting.
My father encouraged my interest in photography from a very early age. I remember well the hours spent in the darkroom developing and printing the images we captured on vacation or at home. Digital photography has been my chosen obsession for the last twenty years.
