My speech is not smooth but when I work with my hands, everything I wish to communicate comes to life. The messages are not received by all, but that is part of the challenge--organizing the product of my hands so that the desired message lands just right.
I have learned from many masters. The origin of my craftsmanship is the freely shared knowledge from employees of the custom fabrication shop where I was raised. In an effort to learn a wider range of expression I began a journey in wood. Thankfully, this path led me to the Krenov School of Fine Furniture where mastery abounds in the staff and each student. Dots connected, and it felt natural to combine my backgrounds in tools made to create fine furniture.
