My workshop is my sanctuary. It is my space to think, design, create, repurpose, and recreate the world around me. Growing up, I always loved drawing and tinkering, but nowadays I have really found my passion as a maker, specifically in woodworking. I prefer to use found or salvaged materials in my building projects. Much of the wood and other materials that I work with have been pulled out of dumpsters or found on the side of the road. When I do purchase new materials, I am intentional to use only what I need for a project so that any scraps or surplus can be saved for future creations. I take pride in reducing my need to buy materials, but I also take great joy in taking something worn and broken and making it beautiful or useful once again.
