Maker Faire NW Arkansas 2023

Woodworx Workshop

Home: Arkansas, United States

I make pieces that I would like having in my own home and I enjoy the challenge of creating custom pieces with input from my clients. I see vibrancy in my art and in giving discarded wood and other forgotten materials a second life.

My passion for creating unique, functional art and furniture pieces using reclaimed materials, secondhand goods and found objects ignited after experimenting with a limitless supply of barnwood and other materials at a ranch in Dripping Springs, Texas. I moved from Austin to Fayetteville close to 10 years ago, and I've continued evolving my craft and signature style. The materials I use in my work are all repurposed in one way or another. I use pieces of walnut, pecan and oak, alongside scraps from roadside furniture finds and thrift store 'near giveaways.' If it's real wood, I will incorporate it into my work. I want people to know that my materials could have unncessarily found their way to the dump or the burn pile. I want little kids to shift the idea that we live in a disposable society. I want people to smile at the bright colors and designs that I create. I want to tell the stories of the people who commission my pieces. I want to inspire, I want to make people happy and I want to make people fee
