About the Artist

Don has been turning for 26 years. He was an architectural production turner turned hobbyist. Now in retirement Don enjoys turning all manner of objects from small trinkets to large salad bowls. He manages to spend at least 4 hours a day in his shop.

Being a wood junkie he is constantly looking for downed trees with good figure.

Don is a founding member of the Gateway Gallery, a cooperative art gallery west of Round Hill, VA, where he sells his work. Don's work also sells at the twice yearly art shows at the Burwell Morgan Mill, at the Waterford Store in Waterford, VA, and Art in the Foothills, a once a year show in Bluemont, VA.

Don's work has also sold at the Aldie Mill Art Show, the Firehouse Gallery & Shop in Berryville, VA, Bluemont Vineyards and Museum of the Shenandoah in Winchester, VA.

Don has taught many others to turn and is active in the Capitol Area Woodturners, Apple Valley Woodturners, and was one of the founders of Catoctin Area Woodturners in Loudoun County, VA.

Don enjoys donating pieces for auction for charitable purposes and his work has also been recognized in a hardcover book titled "Reflections of Clarke County Virginia" featuring over 100 area artists.
