I design and make furniture, drawing deeply on my roots as a native of BlackMountain, NC. I work in a studio 14 steps from my back door where the beauty of the landscape, my wife and my two daughters are a constant source of inspiration for my work. In this space I create heirloom quality furniture, using time honored techniques and hand rubbed finishes that beg to be touched. Even more than the process of creating, what brings me the most joy is knowing that what I create will be experienced. Loved, lived in, holding a family meal or providing a space for relaxing with a favorite book, my hope is that my art will be used and appreciated daily.
