Luxembourg Art Prize
I have been interested in every type of woodworking since I was a kid but becoming an artist seemed so distant and not something for me. As i became older i realised i was becoming one. I am extraordinarily blessed to do what I love for a living. Somehow in the last decade I’ve turned a hobby into a profession and then into a lifestyle.
The reason I decided to become an artist has nothing to do with what would make me the most money, or what I was talented at, or even what I necessarily always enjoyed the most. It was simply something that, in my gut, I just knew was the right choice.
Wood is used in the creation of furniture, decorative objects (i.e. frames, jewel boxes, ornaments, etc…), sculptures and more. I personally love working with it because i can transform it into anything i possibly want.
As a designer, I make sculptures, furniture and utensils crafted in wood, plastic, bone, stone and metals.
I try to make a connection with my abstract and organic / natural objects between nature, science and craftsmanship.
My biggest source of inspiration is nature, the landscape.
My work often differs from one another and consists of the following forms:
My tools consist of gouges, chisels, wooden mallets, pointed instruments and small power tools.
