My work revolves around curves, movement, and sensuality where nature’s small wonders, flowers, leaves, fruit, and foliage are the inspiration. Other influences are the work of Constantin Brâncuși, José de Rivera, elegant cars/boats, and women.
I create with wood for its intrinsic value, virility, and rapidity of execution. The grain and beauty of the wood have little influence with the initial design where I visualize new work in matte black. If the piece has presence and dignity adorned only in black, then the beauty of the wood becomes that dark moist chocolate frosting.
I have no philosophical or academic prose to shade my work. I simply love being in the creative path, from the first spark of a new piece, the selection of wood, and then the final rainbow moment when the finish is applied.
