I am a self-taught pyrographic artist living in Ohio. I have worked in
various mediums for most of my life. However, I am currently enjoying Pyrography-the art of burning on wood and other mediums. I have been burning on wood for the past 6 years and recently I have started to burn on leather and paper. My work has been shown at woodcarving shows, art shows, and craft shows and I have won many awards. I even presented one of my works to noted entertainer Wayne Newton.
I have a huge love for animals and nature. I specialize in wildlife, pet portraits, and flowers. However, my art is not limited to these fields alone. I am now enjoying doing portraits of people.
I do commissioned work, and I am willing to accommodate customers regarding their requests. Each piece can be uniquely colored or done in monochrome and is signed and dated by me. Let me create you a lasting treasure!
In my galleries you will find pyrography done on a variety of basswood shapes. Basswood is my wood of choice, because it is a soft and almost grain-free wood, which allows me to experiment with various approaches to woodburning for creating my pieces of pyrographic art.
I am a proud member of the I.A.P.A. the (International Association of Pyrographic Artists). Also member of National Wood Carvers Association.
