My introduction to wood carving started in 1990 when I took an introductory course in power carving using a small Dremel tool with a flexshaft. My first project was a Western Meadowlark and I became hooked. Following many lessons I have gone through the songbird decoy experience and have not looked back. My art is in private collections around the world.
I have taught many courses and here is where I get my greatest enjoyment. I like to give my students minimal instructions and then watch them make sawdust. Most of my projects are my own design. I teach power carving at Lee Valley and am about to start a 15 hour course January 20, 2011 where we will carve a rooster.
My other carving projects are my 'funky boots', a style I developed over the last 10 years. I use 'F' wood - free, fallen,fragile,firewood - and carve free form wooden boots with a natural finish or a detailed finish. It is my own technique and I plan to share some ideas with any one interested.
