2019 Best Artist New to Show

My passion is to create personal, meaningful works of art with the natural color and grains of exotic hardwoods and artist hand dyed maple veneer. I "weave" wood into fabric like patterns, reminiscent of bead work or needlepoint. A 2 inch bowl can have 1000 pieces of wood in it. Sustainable woods from around the world are used. Chatke Viga is a vibrant orange, Kingwood a striped purple; Lacewood and White Oak add texture with their dramatic grain patterns.
