I have been very much influenced by my father, a Presbyterian minister and amateur artist, who took his family to his art shows on New Jersey boardwalks and Delaware city squares. I developed an appreciation for art and the beauty of God’s world, despite its brokenness. I love the Atlantic coastline, the sand dunes, palm trees, and fishing.
Designing and creating cutting boards has been an enjoyable and creative avenue of work for me, inspired by fellow woodworkers and pushing my own creativity in fun ways. The earth’s woods are many and varied, and I enjoy working with its diverse colors and grains.
