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 ofthe landscape, my wife and my two daughters are a constant source of inspirationfor my work. In this space I create heirloom quality furniture, using time honoredtechniques and hand rubbed finishes that beg to be touched. Even more thanthe process of creating, what brings me the most joy is knowing that what I createwill be experienced. Loved, lived in, holding a family meal or providing a space forrelaxing with a favorite book, my hope is that my art will be used and appreciateddaily.
