Born and raised in Louisville, Paul moved to the country with his wife in the 80’s to “homestead” and raise children. Now retired after 40 years as a nurse he has been able to devote more time to creating. Wood has always been his favorite medium. He enjoys turning platters, bowls and vessels, often using spalted or partially rotten wood. The woods on his farm supply him with ample raw materials. Lately he has been experimenting with epoxy -the blending of wood and plastic which offers many new possibilities, including river tables, charcuterie boards and cutting boards.
