Deep Waters represents a transformational interaction between beings and the rippling energy that ensues. This piece is a new addition to the Resonance series, continuing to draw inspiration from those willing to pause and dive into transcendent moments. Deep Waters represents the willingness to lose oneself in interplay, stirring currents well below the surface.

Working with wood has been a source of peaceful intrigue since my childhood. When creating, I try to practice 'presence', or mindfulness, so I can stay safe and make the most of my time creatively. I strive to balance the seemingly opposite goals of absolute physical control and creative surrender.
On my best days, I can zoom in on the finest material details, while also acknowledging how various elements might play to a piece's artistic message. Approaching studio time in this way may not be the most productive in terms of volume, but it allows me to explore and fully under-stand things in a more satisfying way.
As an artist, I aim to create clean-lined forms with minimal distraction. I use grain, color, and texture to invite an intimate conversation with my work. I enjoy working within self-prescribed constraints, focusing my exploration to develop philosophical concepts into series. Currently, my work represents curiosities relating to water, energy, and the human spirit.
