I am a visual artist and woodworker creating functional and character filled furniture and accessories using the many techniques I have accumulated over the years. I received my BFA in 1998 and have since done fine art, finish carpentry, cabinet installation, and faux finishing. I have been doing original furniture design and custom woodwork since 2010.
My goal and purpose is to combine these elements and skills to make functional beautiful furniture that is inviting as well as aesthetically pleasing.

This table is 10 feet long, and 48 inches wide, 32 inches high, for combo dining/work. The benches are 22 inches high, and 8 feet long, so that they can be pushed under the table for an event that requires a buffet style set up. This space is a live /work space in the Pearl District in NW Portland, which will house visiting artists as well as function as a gathering/ show space for our lovely art community.

A gorgeous combo of art and functionality. All made from the same piece of oak, harvested by me and slow dried for over a year. The legging joints are double mortise and tenon with compound notch, all carved from the existing wood, no dowel rods, no buscuits, no screws. Just handcrafted joints and glue. 60x12 x 18 high, sealed with oil based polyurethane.
