I founded Made on Earth Studio shortly after graduating from RISD in 1989. I continue to design and fabricate furniture, sculpture, puppets and masks and prepare for educational programs in my well-equipped rural studio. I hand-craft furniture using traditional joinery and enjoy working with locally milled hardwoods. Much of my lumber comes from historically significant trees.

For my sculptural pieces, I use a variety of media, including wood, metal, plastics and contemporary resins.

I often collaborate with other artists to facilitate their creative process.

Most my work is commissioned. Please contact me to discuss your vision.
