Artistic and Utilitarian Woodturnings

Artist Statement:

I have had a lifelong interest in design, form, and the creative use of local materials in creating artistic work. Living in North Carolina, a major center of American woodcraft, since 1998, I am focusing on wood turning. I use simple, graceful shapes to showcase the beauty of Native American woods like box elder, cherry, apple, pecan, maple walnut, cedar, chestnut and Bradford pear.
I have studied with Dick Sing at the John C. Campbell Folk Art School; Christian Burchard at Arrowmont; and attended workshops with Trent Bosch, Cindy Drozda, Al Stirt, David Ellsworth, Ray Key, Jimmy Clewes, Rudy Lopez and other internationally known master wood turners.
I have attended the biannual NC Woodturners Symposium since 2003 and the annual national Symposium of the American Association of Woodturners since 2008. I am the treasure, and have served as president, of the Woodturners Guild of NC and have been a member of the American Association of Woodturners since 2000.
