About the Artist

Growing up in the foothills of the California Sierras, Mike, along with his three brothers and parents, explored the mountains, deserts, forests, and spent countless glorious days on, in and under the pacific waves.  This foundation, along with Mike's Dad's influence as an industrial arts teacher, led to his appreciation of trees and their incredibly beautiful and diverse timber. Mike has been turning since November, 2009, and is a current member of the American Association of Woodturners, Blue Ridge Woodturners and Central Virginia Woodturners.  Mike lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia with is wife, Cindy. In addition to turning, his passions include architecture, constitutional history, biking, hiking & snowboarding.  Together, Mike and Cindy run their national sales & marketing business.


Mike will be demonstrating several new projects: Kissing Fishes, Captive Marbles, and a natural edge high and low art vase.
