The Journey of the Artist

Many amateur artists look at their artwork with a feeling of disappointment and dread.. They torment themselves with regret because they are not yet masters creating masterpieces or they are just plain unsatisfied with their progress. Ashamed of their work. They prefer to lock it up in a closet - to hide it from the world or destroy it by fire. And I say hold on to it. Hold onto everything that you produce. You never know, if you continue on this path, those early “failures” might be worth something.

The Drillbit Accident!

I’d like to share a story with you all about a random person I met a while back. I know this doesn't necessarily have anything to do with art or traveling but it's a funny/scary story and it shows that sometimes you can sit back and listen to someone talk and then realize that they have something amazing to tell you! We just need to be receptive and let them entertain us...

Furniture Obsessions

When I first started working with wood as a teenager, I felt like I was traveling back in time. I used to roam around the shop, carrying a board of lumber on my shoulder or analyze my set of carving chisels laid out before me, deciding which one to use. As I worked, I imagined the countless generations of craftsmen who found themselves immersed in the same labor, developing the art of furniture making throughout the ages. I had my face in the history books just as much as I had my hands on the workbench.
