My art days began with pencils, paint, map colors, paper and canvas. As I learned how to use power tools, I officially entered the world of "wood art." My first major solo piece was a reclaimed Texas pallet art piece made solely of materials from my house remodel. Since then, I've continued to explore new concepts and have created an assortment of pieces from simple painted wood signs to complex custom jigsaw pieces. My favorite projects of all require repurposing used materials and extra creative thinking.
