Artist's Statement

For me wood has been an amazingly versatile medium to express my ideas and designs. I have always felt there was an artist inside of me and that I had an eye for design and attention to detail. As a youngster, I explored this interest with Lego bricks, and made my own unique creations. But obviously this medium presented its limitations. This year at Selkirk College's Fine Woodworking program, exploring the medium of wood has opened up a world of possibilities for me… from drawing an idea on paper to making it a reality. It’s been a very rewarding experience. My goal for my work is to create beautiful and functional pieces, while exploring intricate details which don’t distract from the overall form.
