I am a woodcarver with a strong background in
design and painting. It wasn’t until my creative
work became focused on wood carving that I
realized how much of the design process for
my earlier 2D work was conceptualized in
relief the criteria I used when visualizing a
painting or design began naturally in my mind
as an image in low relief.
I feel as if the years of designing, drawing, and
painting in 2D were actually spent in
preparation for working in wood, even though
that was never part of my original plan. It has
been a slow, steady, and seamless transition
in my creative process that has brought me to
this extremely satisfying place as a
professional wood carver.
