Artist’s Statement

Turning started out as a hobby for me when I retired 11 years ago but it has since turned into a passion. Not a passion in the sense that I am spending hours and hours in the shop everyday but a passion in the sense that I am on a constant quest to stretch my abilities and test new horizons.

I love looking at the art of others and finding inspiration for something that I have never tried before. It's satisfying to finish a piece and be happy with the result but it's even more satisfying to have someone else at an art show pick up a piece and see the beauty that was meant to be.
