I was studying sociology in Italy at Tufts when I discovered sculpture. I never looked back. I did ultimately get a BFA from Tufts and the Museum School. Subsequently, I learned woodworking around Boston, working first for Designer/Woodworker Charles Webb, and then for myself. I picked a lot of brains along the way.
Since 1975, I have done architectural millwork, custom furniture, and restoration for clients in Cambridge, Manhattan, Montreal, and New Hampshire. I work mostly in wood and metal, but also ceramic and stone.
For sculpture, I take my inspiration from my materials and from living things in the world around me. As for woodworking, I enjoy working with clients to meet their particular needs.
In the summer of 2022 I took on the part time role of facilities manager at Wonderwell Moutain Refuge, a Tibetan Buddhist teaching center not far from my home in NH. It’s a great pleasure to be involved with a group of like minded people who care about things. Their website is https://www.naturaldharma.org.
