Artist's Statement

I was born in Atlanta, Georgia and lived in the area all of my life. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree from West Georgia College in 1969 and attended Woodrow Wilson College of Law from 1975 through 1978. I worked in insurance and construction law for about 20 years and am now currently employed as a full time woodturner in Marietta, Georgia.

I have always enjoyed creating things with my hands. I have made some furniture and spent about 15 years as an amateur photographer. I learned woodturning from my father in the late seventies and have been a woodturner for over 23 years.

I think of my wood turning as a way to reveal the beauty and texture which is found in the wood. The wood I use comes from trees, which are native to the southeastern United States. These are not considered to be exotic woods, however, they possess a richness in the grain and figure which is too often overlooked.

I create pieces using simple shapes and forms which will best display the colors and patterns, which are inherent in the wood. My use of smooth curving surfaces and lack of carvings or other surface embellishments is intended to better display the wood and not compete with it. The finish enables the observer to get a feel of the warmth of the wood while allowing its intricacies to be imparted.
