In 1989 Earl began his career studying fine furniture design and construction with Jeffrey Greene at his studio in New Hope, Pennsylvania. That award-winning apprenticeship program, as well as the rich history of furniture-making in the New Hope area, including George Nakashima and other artists, contributes to his work as he showcases the beauty of natural wood in his furniture. After the apprenticeship, he worked for two high-end cabinetry/furniture shops in Bucks County, Pennsylvania and Bethesda, Maryland. His work from that time included a wide variety of items: from Park Avenue penthouse suite renovations; to pews at the Basilica of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C.; to circa 1700s home restorations; as well as many private and commercial projects. During this time he was also designing and building his own fine furniture. In 1996 he opened his own studio in northern New Mexico. His work has been shown in galleries around the country and can be found in a wide variety of locations, from contemporary homes and businesses to western-style haciendas. — Click here to subscribe to our Special Offers and Updates Email that we send about 3 to 4 times a year
