I am a sculptor.

I am guided by the growth patterns inherent in my materials, the human body in space, and the living systems at work in the landscape. I follow principles of ecological design, regenerative systems, and what the beavers teach me.

I strive to make things that feel good in the hands to hold, good to the body to use, and good to the mind to consider. 

This portfolio covers all scales of my work, from hand-held objects and sculpture, to furniture, to small structures, to large scale public sculpture. 

I design and build custom projects through Samara Woodcraft and Design, LLC.

My museum exhibit design and fabrication portfolio is available upon request.

Thanks for visiting!
