Artist's Statement:
I prefer to work with wood veneers because of the extensive choice of grain, "figure" and color available, plus the ability to match different veneers into beautiful new patterns and repeats. My interior design training has given me an artistic and aesthetic perspective that is complimented by my detail oriented, functional designs. I feel grateful that I am able to be creative and do something I love for my life's work, while at the same time improving the quality and enjoyment of my clients' lives.
