Paul is an artist who works in the Art Department of the University of Minnesota. He has taught courses and workshops in sculptural woodworking, metal fabrication, and metal-casting; and has a deep love for craft-based techniques. Paul has almost never met a tool that he didn’t like, and proves this by his ever-expanding collection. He takes great satisfaction from using self-made tools and is constantly modifying, remaking, and learning the use of old and new hand tools. Paul tries to spend all of his extra time either in the wood or metal shop, or outside with his kids.
