From my travels. I traveled for 10, maybe 15 years around the world and I saw design concepts in all of these other countries. And while I traveled, I was also building furniture. Some of these were developing countries where there were no tools. Other times you only had a couple of tools, or you had to build your own tools from scratch, and from there I just got this simple, less-is-more idea, I saw these more organic forms and when I came home, I just got into creating driftwood art.
I live on the mid-coast of Maine and there's a beautiful supply here. I find a piece, dry it for a year, let it color naturally. I'll look at it as I'm working on other pieces and I'll get this fresh idea and then make something new.
