it’s great turning ideas into reality with woodworking. I especially enjoy creating a sense of movement in my designs by playing with balance and asymmetry. Creating curves or acute angles and folds is labor intensive, but it’s a labor of love. I require my furniture to be functional, well crafted and comfortable but love the fact that furniture is sculptural as well as useful.
I always liked drawing and art but didn’t think of woodworking until “Shop for Girls” was offered for the fist time in 1969 when I was a Junior in high school. Teaching is a passion for me because I feel so lucky to have made that connection at that age as a girl. I now teach woodworking at Bucks County Community College and teach carpentry to young people on parole and probation with the Mural Arts’ restorative justice program in Philadelphia.
I share a shop with another woodworker and work with my husband doing renovation projects on our house.
