I love wood...I love everything about wood! I love the way it looks and smells, and the way it cuts with a sharp knife. I started wood carving when I was about 17 and have now been wood carving for over 45 years. I enjoy taking an ordinary block of wood and making it come to life!

Over the years I have won numerous blue ribbons for my work at various woodcarving competitions around the country. Today my wood carvings are found in private collections throughout the United States, Canada, UK, Denmark, Australia and Afghanistan.

All of my wood carvings are hand carved with just a wood carving knife and sometimes with a small hand gouge…no power tools are ever used. My tools are extremely sharp so there is rarely a need for sanding. Also, I like to let the knife cuts show on my wood carvings to give them a more rustic, hand carved, handmade appearance. And each wood carving is signed with my personal logo.

I enjoy carving all kinds of subjects…usually whatever strikes me at the time…but my favorites are caricatures, Santas and tree ornaments.
