​​​I have spent my career working with various clientelle on enhancing their lives with the beauty of creative functional design. What you see on this website is only a sampling of the work that started as my vision on paper and then was crafted in my workshop.

​​

My family  background is in the arts. My Grandfather was painter and sculptor Irvin Burkee, a member of the National Sculpture Society . My Grandmother Bonnie Burkee is a printmaker and sculptor. Their works are in private and public collections internationally, including the Smithsonian Institution.

I began my woodworking career at a very early age working in my mother’s interior design and furniture studio. When I was nineteen I became shop foreman, and shortly thereafter took control of the woodworking part of the business designing my creations using the broad aesthetic influences of my family, adding my personal dynamic .  

Arcobaleno (translation Rainbow), my line of furniture which is featured on this website, is a venture which consists of flowing free standing curves.These pieces can enhance a wide range of styles from classical to contemporary.

The custom pieces are works that were created for my clientele, many of whom have become collectors of my work.
