My sculptures are hand carved from hard woods. I utilize solid pieces of wood in their natural color in my designs. Occasionally stains are used to enhance the unique look of the sculpture and add color. All pieces are hand sanded and finished with natural oils to enhance the natural beauty and increase the durability of the wood. Wood carving is one of the oldest arts. The lasting quality of wood as a permanent medium is proven by some of the remarkably preserved wooden statues dating back more than 6 000 years. My work is realistic with a major emphasis on western wildlife and figurative subject matter.
