Custom Made Drums

As a fine artist and craftsman, I work with my hands, heart, and soul, for myself as well as for the community. There is an unspoken dialogue in my creations that, at its essence, is about the things I have learned through retreats, hikes, and time spent in nature. I value the earth, the spirit, ceremonial traditions, and the sacred. I believe that drumming provides a ritual to connect to ones’ higher self and expanding spirit, ultimately fostering connection. Through craft, heart, and with a ceremonial blessing, I hold space for the intentions of each owner. The process results in the birth of a special drum created to support the owners journey. Options include integrating personal items and painting. To order your custom drum, contact me at 414-460-4500 or by email at More images of my work can be viewed on Instagram.

Expand your Spirit, Parachutes not Allowed


Recently, I went to the Grand Canyon.

It was a retreat, an intentional rebirth. I went there to learn my values, to learn to set new boundaries, to transition from anger to forgiveness, to create new goals, and ultimately discover my purpose. The trip helped me remember the magic/essence of life, reassuring me that it’s okay to dream, okay to play, and to be specific too… but mostly to love. Starting first to love within and then as I realize it’s okay, to share that with others, and then the universe.

I started the journey with a kind of nervousness. Ultimately for me, in the beginning, was anticipating a return to the source or a maybe just allowing oneself to, allowing myself to feel present, while at the same time embracing the infinite unknown.

Part of that unknown parallels the unknown of “Can I achieve the result? Will I achieve my intention? Can I do this?” By accepting my fears and making myself vulnerable to the possibilities, a transformation takes place. That’s the magic. Expand your spirit, find your castle, envision the grandiose.

I left the retreat feeling proud, confident, adaptable, protective, and kind. A lion. I left knowing that at the foundation of my being there is a need to expand my spirit, learn my story, to know my intent.

Returning to the shop, I have poured that spirit into each new project, fully investing myself into the work, remaining grateful that it not only keeps pouring in, but that my clients share my values.
