Hand Drill, Planes, and Saws

These pieces belonged to Nathan Katz, a furniture refinisher and my great grandfather. Soon the painting will be passed down to my daughter and the tools will go to my son, a talented wood worker.

The Keepsake Series grew from my love of utilitarian objects. I am fascinated by simple tools and their ability to create. There is great beauty in the humble, worn chair backs and tool handles that I paint. These items have served generations and I feel privileged to be able to paint them.
