Exhibiting Member Since 2016
I am not an artist, I am a plagiarist. This is not false modesty. It is the truth. I have stolen a simple and elegant style from some of the kindest people in the world. The Shakers. I was taught how to make Shaker boxes by a very generous man, John Wilson. We met and I became his student at the Shaker Village in Pleasant Hill, KY. That was in October of 2002. At that point it became my passion and living. Using their methods and approach to work, I build the boxes with domestic and exotic woods. I consider myself very fortunate. First, that I found something I love to do, and second that I have a wife and two children that support me and my work.
