I quit my job as a graphic designer and web developer to make fine woodworking art. I love the pleasant, warm feel of wood and dedicate all my spare time to working with this noble material.
My creative journey began one year ago when I realized that I want to do something different in my life. I have always loved taking a piece of wood and turning it into something unique and useful at the same time. I love the feeling I get, when I see various artworks from the past. They have never ceased to fascinate me. The use of a traditional woodworking approach combined with the natural beauty of hardwood trees makes my thoughts come true.
I usually use only hand tools and traditional ways of wood processing, natural adhesives (bone glues), dyes and pigments (self-mixed milk paint) and also finishes (natural drying oils, beeswax, and hard resins such as copal and amber).
