I found the love of woodworking in Senior High Industrial Arts Class which I then pursued a Carpentry apprenticeship program followed by working in a custom furniture shop for two years. My passion though was to open my own business "the Wood Plane" which happened in 1983.
I have since enjoyed working with different kinds of wood, their incredible beauty gives me so many avenues of creativity.
My work combines the texture and
tones of domestic and exotic woods
into functional furniture and art objects.
'The Wood Plane' is featured annually in Central Wisconsin's 'Hidden Studios Art Tour' which connects artists in the tour with the people of the area.
I am a member at Q Artists Cooperative in downtown Stevens Point, WI where my pieces are on display for sale year-round.
Liturgical furniture has been delivered to 35 churches in states including Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Missouri and North Carolina. Other pieces have also been bought from customers around the country.
Projects ranging from designing and constructing wooden toys that have been featured as grand prize winners in Better Homes and Garden Wood Magazine to winning a international competition by Freud Tool Company in Italy for a cabinet I designed in addition to creating multiple pieces of liturgical furniture for churches throughout the United States, each piece unique and custom made.
