I derive my greatest satisfaction as an artist from the sheer joy of doing – of being at one with the wood and releasing the beauty that is within. I love the challenge of looking at and listening to a piece of wood and letting it reveal to me what it should become. I have a tremendous sense of inner peace about my life and my work, and hope that those who touch the pieces of art I have created can feel this in the work itself.
