My love of sailing ships began at the age of 12 after spending a glorious week aboard the "Roseway" a 137 ft Maine Windjammer. She was built on November 24, 1925 as a Grand Banks Fishing Schooner.
I draw inspiration from maritime history by building replicas and designing my own sailing vessels. I specialize in building miniatures inside old fashioned timepieces and other small glass media. Each ship is completely scratch built and attention to detail is paramount.
I define myself as having a Lilliputian effect, because with every ship I build I imagine myself on the deck of that vessel. If you ever look through the bottleneck of a ship you'll know exactly what I mean.
