Colorado Forest Sculpture

Abstract sculptures from natural wood forms.

My current focus is Colorado Forest Sculpture, letting nature speak through abstract wood sculpture.I create abstract sculptures from natural wood forms. My art starts in the mountains where I find artistically intriguing pieces of wood. Back in the studio, I use a variety of hand tools and techniques, combined with the artistic principles of design, to bring out the best each piece has to offer. I gently shape the form, restore and stabilize the wood, and develop the surface textures and colors. Finally, I custom design a base that not only supports but displays the piece to best advantage. Each sculpture is a unique work of art, a combination of abstract form and the natural warmth of wood, created with the goal of letting nature speak.

The images on this page represent only a fraction of my sculptures. For a complete inventory of available pieces, please visit my Etsy Store.
