Wood Wall Art
Working in predominantly wood, his wonderful wall pieces are reminiscent of the metal work of C. Jeré – had they been commissioned by the Jetsons.

Cut from hardwoods such as Black Walnut and Mahogany, his pieces encompass everything from retro Rocket and Space art to futuristic depictions of Cities to abstracted Mid Century design icons like ovals and starbursts.

Wood Fretwork Collages
His Fretwork collages of nostalgic road signs that accompanied Googie architecture for Diners, Bowling Alleys and Hotels are some of my favorites.
