Artist Statement

Creating pens out of a piece of wood is one of the most fulfilling processes out of all my wood working art. Each piece of wood is different in its own way, even among the same species. There is something almost spiritual about wood that makes one want to touch it. And handling a piece of wood allows an individual to share in the spirit of that tree as well as bringing a piece of nature to one's life. Trees are an essential living, breathing natural resource of our land.  I believe that each and every tree has a spirit that contributes something special, and often overlooked, to our lives. When a tree dies, I believe that its spirit lives on through the work I create.


I am fortunate to live in a place that is surrounded by many trees, but that is not the case for many.  My art is a way that I can share the spirit of the wood with others who may not get to experience the closeness of nature in their everyday lives.


The wood speaks to me thru my art.  I have no set designs, and when I mount a piece of wood on the lathe, I let the wood dictate what the finished product will be.  The wooden pen then joins in a harmonious relationship with some of the worlds most sought after metals in the form of gold, nickel, titanium, rhodium, copper, chrome and brass. This marriage of elements results in an aesthetically beautiful piece and creates an heirloom pen to be enjoyed for many generations. With the advent of the computer, the art of handwriting has taken a second chair to technology. It is my hope that these pens inspire the writer in us all. And in doing so, the spirit of the tree is not lost, but continues to enrich our lives and all life by sharing a common spirit, that these wooden pens touch.
