Trees are one of the few things in this world which we can enjoy after their lifespan of colorful blossoms, shady leaves, tasty fruits and nuts, and autumn color has ended. Because of the perceptive mind and skilled hands of talented craftpersons, we can enjoy a tree's rebirth as a work of art.


2018 Art Fair Announcement

Thanks to all who visited one of my art fairs over the past decade and supported me with a purchase or kind words!

I will not be doing any art fairs during 2018. I'm taking a year off to enjoy retirement without the pressure of making a lot of art fair inventory. I'm also working on some rather artistic pieces that I never had time to do since I was always working towards shows. I will feature on this website when they are finished. If you wish to join my mailing list and be notified of any future shows, please click here to use the form on the contact page and I will add you to the mailings.
