My grandfather was a woodworker, my grandmother a painter, my mother a gardener, and my father a refinisher. Growing up I was surrounded by craftsmanship – precise lines, smooth curves, and distinct details shaped by skilled hands. It wasn’t until I moved away from home that I came to realize how much these details brought comfort and warmth to my childhood memories.
After completing my education at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, I became a Historic Carpenter working on the preservation of homes built in the early 1900’s. This soon led me to handcrafting furniture and design for the home.
My woodworking is a conversation between the past, present, and future of craftsmanship strengthened by family and traditions. It is made to add warmth and intimacy to the home.
