A natural outgrowth of my time as a landscape photographer has been woodturning, incorporating materials and designs evolved from the miracles of nature.  What started as a casual interest in 2018, woodturning has developed into a passion.  I have been fortunate to learn from some of the country's best turners and am continually experimenting with different techniques like pyrography, carving, coloring, and texturing.
