Woodturning is my passion and artistic outlet. I choose wood as my medium because of the almost unlimited possibilities to create items of beauty and function. Woodturning bowls and vases is challenging and fun. I also enjoy woodturning boxes and other unique gift items. Wood can be both rugged and delicate. It’s my hope that my work helps others see the value and the importance of maximizing the potential of this beautiful, natural, and sustainable resource. Bringing out the natural beauty of the wood is my primary goal. Sonoma County is blessed with an abundance of my chosen medium, and the natural beauty that inspires me. The wood I use comes from sustainable or reclaimed sources, no trees are cut down for my craft.

I offer woodturning lessons tailored to suit the student. My preferred teaching method is one-on-one which allows me to better focus on the needs of my students. I’m a firm believer in “Hands On” learning. I learned early on as a flight instructor that you can teach theory in class, which is good, but you’ll never learn the art of flying without actually doing it! If you are interested please contact me.
I offer fun and free demonstrations of turning bowls by appointment. The demos last about an hour or two depending on what I’m turning that day. They start at 10:00 am and are scheduled Monday-Saturday. Demos are subject to availability, can accommodate 1-2 persons, and typically performed while preparing for exhibits. If you are interested please contact me.
