am an artist, maker, and educator living in Saskatoon, Canada.
My love of woodworking is not only for the beauty and mystery of the material, but in the inventing of new techniques and processes to create objects.
The materials I use relate to the objects I make. At times a piece of salvaged wood will become a starting point of design. Other times, a design will call for a piece of wood with incredible grain. Using plain wood like birch allows me to approach the work as a three-dimensional canvas. Here, I can apply a variety of surface design techniques to express an idea.
My work tells stories from my life, places I've been, people I've met, architecture, our environment. These stories are interwoven into the objects I create. Craft goes beyond the pleasure of our senses and deals not only with aesthetics, but social and ideological lives.Curriculum Vitae
