I’ve been working at writing a book on an off these past few months. Only recently has the final title been decided on: The Wood Artist: Creating Art Through Wood. The book chronicles the evolution of my wood art and sculpture over several years. Several discoveries about wood are noted. I am excited about this book as this particular subject is part of the continuum of my second career as a furniture maker and wood artist. A few years ago, I never would have envisioned being part of the art world. It is through the medium of wood that I stumbled into it. One thing led to another and soon I developed a sufficient body of work to make serious inroads into the art world. Shifting from creating functional furniture to creating purely non-functional, non-objective art was challenging at times. At the same time, the creation of art unleashed a newfound creativity and vision that could not be manifested through my furniture designs.
