On Friday, May 2, 2014 find me at the Fifth Annual East Shore Festival of the Arts. at the Lansing Town Hall, 27-29 Auburn Road, Lansing Town Hall, Lansing, NY. Between 6 and 9 PM I will be talking about my work to anyone who has questions.

I've got a number of carvings that are in various stages of being carved, hope to work on painting them soon.

Find me making chips every Saturday at the Ithaca Farmers' Market from here on out to November.

After a trip to Utah this spring to see my son, I made a wood block print inspired by petroglyphs I saw there. It's called Pointy People Print.

Help me out, I've got a lot of house repairs to do this summer, I'm ready to sell some art!
