artist bio

Trained in painting and Sculpture in England 1960's ( Privately )
Trained as a cabinet maker , old school 1960's , as time allowed.

artist statement

I build furniture , carved and decorated . I use old methodology and modern adhesives combined.
I work principally with Pine currently . It is excellent for the purpose and is not an endangered resource.
I do not use power tools .

Except for one Dremel for end grain carving.
Also One drill for convenience .

I do all resawing by hand.

My teachers were trained in Italy and Germany before the second world war. They were the cream of the cream .

I am sixty eight.

Currently nothing is for sale . Two pieces are coming to fruition . I would prefer to sell my work here in The States.
Shipping to Europe and elsewhere is exceedingly costly.
I have lived in Wisconsin for 30 years and then some . Twenty of them in the Milwaukee suburbs.

I do not show my work to people who "want to chat," I only show to buyers.
I have no interest in 'lookers,' coming to the shop.
I work a twelve hour day.


I build sculptures of various sizes. I use Basswood and Aves Apoxie.
