I create functional art by burning and painting found wood and fashioning them into mirrors, coat hooks, and candle holders. With my woodburning I find myself exploring the relationship between humanity and nature, continuously revisiting the theme of spiritual connection that unites us to the trees, the plants, and the animals. I enjoy this play of human emotion closely tied up with the simplicity of the natural world; the two concepts seemingly separate, but at the same time, dependent on one another. Each piece is completly unique and made entirely by hand starting with a piece of rough wood and finishing with a beeswax finish.
