Carving laminated blocks of plywood, I create flowing, liquid lines that engage the senses as the eye travels over the contours of my objects. I prefer an intuitive process, viewing collaboration between ideas and materials as central to my creative output. My creations start with a vision and a rudimentary sketch. There are no defined templates, 3D models, or software used. My pieces are functional, but I tend to focus on the aesthetic qualities rather than design principles. Every finished piece is one of a kind. The constant changes that occur as I work keep the work alive as it morphs into my interpretation. The process is paramount. The "unexpected" factor is what my work is about. It often barely resembles the initial sketch or anything I may have had in mind.
