Brendan lives on Vashon Island Washington. Green woodworking caught Brendan's attention because it is intersectional to two of his great loves, ecology and art. Through this work he finds exciting avenues to not only satisfy an urge to create but to encourage attention and attachment to the natural world. The vast majority of the wood he uses in his work comes from where he lives, either from trees on his land, or nearby on Vashon. He has been a green woodworker for five years.
