Treasure hunter, wood worker, lamp maker.

I am a collector of imperfect objects. I grew up on a farm and, though I'm a city kid now, still surround myself with signs of wear and tear. I am drawn to chipped paint, distressed wood, light bulb filament, rust and tarnish. Hunting hidden histories told through coats of color -- each with a tale to tell. With a penchant for power tools, I create my pieces by transforming found objects. Objects are shape shifters - a door becomes a lamp, a suitcase becomes a bookshelf etc. I try to focus on unwanted or outdated things - making them relevant again. Upcycle!

Custom work available - including weather resistant signs. Contact me for timelines and prices.
