I live in central Maine. My studio is in the barn on the family homestead. Surrounded by pine forests, stone walls and farmhouses, the materials I work with come from around here.


Carvings in antique wood best describes my current work. I find early rope beds a century or two old, in pine, poplar or hard wood. Sometimes an old chest that looks to have a surface to suit me goes under the chisel. Most is bought in falling apart condition. Old furniture holds time. It becomes the medium to work in thus the new carving remains old.

My imagery is my own.
