Welcome to Specialty Wood Gifts

The Art of Creating with Burl-wood

About Us

Burl-wood from the root of the California native Redshank Brush.

I work with the root of the Redshank brush.  Redshank is found from Santa Barbra to Baja, with the biggest concentration found in the San Jacinto Mountains.

I inlay Turquoise, Lapis and Malachite in the natural cracks of the wood.

Natures Art

I create one of a kind art pieces, bringing out the character that I see in the piece, while leaving as much of the natural beauty of the wood. each piece is a original work of art.

Inspiring Art for a Lifetime

My Art Work is Available at Middle Ridge Winery Art Gallery in Idyllwild California and local Art Shows.
