While searching among recovered wood for a future sculpture I came across some pieces of walnut, discarded because of some insect damage. On close inspection I became mesmerized by the intricacy of the patterns the insects had created, burrowing on their journey through the tree. 

Instead of covering up these imperfections and I wanted to champion and immortalize them by applying gold leaf, instead revealing the natural designs these tiny artists had made. This is the first of a series all made from the same walnut tree.

I've been an artist of one form or another all my life. I am drawn to weathered wood and metal, exploring their contrast with gold and other metal leaf. I find fascination and beauty in natural processes of aging, the rusting of metals into vibrant colors and the complex textures seen in old, reclaimed woods. My work explores the innate art in these expressions of natural impermanence, often contrasted with the enduring permanence of gold. I believe that art can speak to the heart and to the senses in ways beyond words.
