I am frank and this is American Handcraft.  
 
I create unique custom furniture, decor, and objects for the home as well as design and fabrication of interiors, retail installations and commercial projects.
 
I was raised in a craft + design centered environment.  My mother worked in textiles and fashion and later ran a family business providing supplies and classes in decorative tole painting.  We produced many of the supplies in our garage workshop where, at an early age, I was introduced to and practiced many aspects of craft production .   
 
After studying at UNC Chapel Hill, I attended the MA College of Art + Design where I received a BFA in Industrial Design.  I continue my work there as a faculty member in the ID Department.
Since 2006, I have been intentional in my exploration of form and craft through the design and production of functional and decorative objects.  Inspired by people and emotion, I strive to create work that is colorful, whimsical, elegant, well crafted, and comfortable; often engaging and contextualizing moments of nostalgia and iconography from our human object landscape.
