I have always had an affinity with the ocean and a passion for art. The Pacific Northwest is my home and a major influence in my designs. No matter if you live here, or you spent a brief time passing through, there is something about the area that is almost magical or otherworldly. I wanted my designs to reflect that so you can take it with you wherever you may wander.
Most of my designs are made with materials found locally. From ferns and pines in my back yard to agates, sea glass and shells found on the various beaches near my home town of Port Angeles and all the way down to the Oregon coast. A few elements were found on the beaches in Florida and others come from Colorado, all from my personal collections. There are always treasures to be found when exploring with my wife and kids.
“A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one.”
I made this site to share my art, jewelry designs and sometimes my thoughts. My creative passion is fueled by my beautiful wife and our two kids along with the beautiful area I live in. I am self-taught and still learning. I have been fixing jewelry and creating art using various media for as long as I can remember.
I hope that you enjoy my pictures and creations as you explore my pages. Almost all of my pictures are taken with my Samsung smartphone, most recently Samsung Galaxy Note 20.
As if I did not have enough to do in my life I have started to offer my skills to a few local businesses, organization and even my best man from my wedding from back in the day. Check out my projects page to see the sites, other than this one, that I have created or helped redesign. I also help with social media like Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and dare I say TikTok.
