I truly enjoy gathering nature’s offerings, leaving them true to form, and being allowed to add my own touches to them :)

“Mama Ain’t Happy”

She clenches her heart-shaped locket as she beams through him with her eyes. She’s not only unhappy, she’s downright furious. If looks could speak, this one would say, “you better get away from me.”

She’s a mean, mean mama- that’s for sure :) I Carved this chick in a Hemlock knot- straight from nature to the wood shop she went. After I pluck my treasures from the woods, I like to use a wire brush on a drill to clean up all of the dirt and mucky muck- just a tip for other found wood carvers. Once all of the bad stuff is gone, your mind can get a better idea of the lay of the land- what goes where and such :)

To visit my shop:


Have an awesome day, folks! Much love :)

That’s a great looking carving. You captured what you were after I think.

Hey Josh, She is really peeved about something. Great capture.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

I’ve had “the look” aimed at me a few times.. LOL. Very awesome Josh! You definitely bring expression out of wood pieces.
