The Artists

Les Cizek

I studied Drama and Theatre Arts at Bard College for two years. Spent a year at Colombia University with Carnahan in the Fine Art Program. For several years I taught cabinetmaking at Miami-Dade College and followed that with two years as a student at the College of the Redwoods Fine Woodworking Program. I returned to Miami and joined the South Florida Art Center on Miami Beach, creating custom furniture on commission.

Hurricane Andrew wrecked our home and my shop in Miami. Not entirely an ill wind, as it blew us back to the beautiful North Coast and my favorite town, Fort Bragg, where in 1994 I co-founded Four Sisters Woodworking. Since then I have been happily building beautiful furniture in our splendid new shop. Furniture that has been described as cheerfully idiosyncratic.
