‘I’m a Southeast Pennsylvania native and have lived in Eastern Iowa since the early1970’s. I have earned a B.A. degree in Photography and Visual Arts from Franconia College, Franconia, NH.
When designing furniture, I look at it with a sculpture’s eye and I am happiest when working in a modern style.’
