There is a simplicity in natural wood. Whether observing a cut log, board, or final product, the texture offers the image of life once found in a living tree. By connecting the once living board with the images and colors of the wilderness, each artwork is a connection to nature itself. A naturemension is a space where simplicity and nature combine to offer new ways to view our world.
