Occupation Custom Harp builder, Mountain Glen Harps LLC
Location Ashland, Oregon, United States
Introduction I have been building one-of-a-kind custom harps for over thirty years. I have created over 325 carved and sculpted harps in single, double or cross strung versions, from 10 to 42 strings. I studied Classical Italian Violin Making for two years at the Violin Making School of America, in Salt Lake city Utah. In 1990 I built my first laser beam harp, in a framed style, like a harp with strings. I have many more since then, both as public art pieces and as science and technology exhibits, for a Children`s Museum in Rochester NY, and for a children`s Hospital in Virginia Beach Virginia, the National Science Center Museum in Malaysia, and The Jewish Children`s Museum in Brooklyn NY. I also have one under way for a Science center in Indonesia. I also paint on silk and canvas. I am currently working on an public art installation of 24 hand painted silk banners, mapping out the path of the Ancient Silk Road, from China to Italy.
