Arborist, Musician & Artisan

As a musician and arborist for over 25 years, the worlds of art and science seem to merge at the wood lathe for me. Both the natural symmetry and the chaos that is embodied in the life of a tree can be revealed in the stories of splendid good grace and tragic catastrophic events. I try to demonstrate the drama inside, which will allow the tree to speak for itself.

Many pieces have been turned from wood I select and collect from clients’ projects. The recycling of wood destined for the fireplace into a work of art has proven rewarding to both the client and the tree, providing a real connection with the hidden natural beauty growing all around us.
