Biography from Trailside Galleries:
Life as a teacher, woodworker and artist are all a part of the metamorphosis of a woodworker turned sculptor.  For a woodworking teacher of 35 years, preoccupied with the wood lathe, turning alabaster satisfies my need to create. I grew up in Northeast Wyoming around Sundance.   After graduating from Black Hills State College in Spearfish, South Dakota, a restless spirit lead me from Wyoming  to South Dakota to Wisconsin to Arizona and finally to the great Northwest.  In Arizona I found the love of my life, who is now my best critic and inspirational soul mate. Together we and our two children found a home in Oregon, where the scenic McKenzie River meets the mighty Willamette at the south end of the Willamette Valley.  

After years of teaching, with summers spent working in the woods and 13 seasons of commercial fishing on a salmon seiner in the waters of Alaska off Kodiak Island, the need to “go further” still excites me.
As an artist and sculptor whose primary tool is the lathe, I lean toward minimalism.  My vessel shapes, turned very thin, allow the stone to reveal prehistoric landscapes that, with every touch of the tool, amaze me.

So why do I turn alabaster?  Pick up one of my bowls, feel its smoothness, hold it so that light lets you see the soul of the stone, and your question will be answered.
