The three R’s that inspire my artwork: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Each creation is unique and magical, beckoning you to explore the Worlds around you for the True Nature of Beauty. With these pieces, I encourage others to take consider a different perspective and the way they view the things that surround us. Just like a Raven, I can’t resist anything that shines or sparkles, picking up anything along my path that evokes my Creative Spirit. Everything from rocks, shells, glass, beads and bits of ephemera that get squirreled away. I invite you to explore my page and see which pieces resonate with You.
My intention is to inspire others to connect to Joy.

John has been a woodworker for over 40 years. In his early career he designed and sold contemporary pieces of furniture, worked as a carpenter and enjoyed decorative carving. He started as an elevator technician in the 80’s.
Now retired, John is back to his passion in woodworking.
He combines his background in woodworking and love of nature to create unique wall hung functional mirrored sculptures using tree holes.
John is inspired by what he finds outside and brings the beauty of the natural world into homes.
When he is not watching his grandchildren, you will find him in his woodworking studio /Gallery in Connecticut.
Tree holes provide a great medium for creativity and also provide a habitat for wildlife.
Therefore, John uses only the tree holes from downed trees.
His work is part him and part Mother Nature blended together to create a unique functional art form.
