The Designs:

I design and create weavings and sculpture from sustainable, natural materials including willows, tamarisk, juniper, stone, antlers  and a variety of other natural materials.  Most of the willows and tamarisk are collected in the Gunnison River Drainage of Western Colorado and I my cuttings promote regrowth to insure my work is "eco-friendly."    I hand-pick all  of these elements for distinct texture and color so that each piece is unique.  Most of my work has a southwest flavor and many designs hint of ancient, indigenous. cultures.  The bulk of these designs can be displayed indoors or out.

The Artistic Intent:

To create art inspired by nature that will inspire others to realize the inherent beauty in wild places.  I also attempt to integrate the elements of soil, stone and vegetation that create the unequaled landscapes found in wilderness.   Everything I design is a tribute to Mother Earth and the rich, irreplaceable biodiversity of this planet
