ABOUT THE ARTIST
I have been sculpting wood for over 18 years. I enjoy carving wood spirits, Native Americans, wizards and animals who keep watch over ancient canyons, derelict orchards, high plains and fallow fields. The goal of my work is to sculpt images from wood that are interwoven with Mother Nature. I consider it a great joy to create a sculpture from an old tree stump or block of wood, as though releasing the spirit of the once living wood.
I also create images from pen and ink. My interest in this art form began over 30 years ago. My subject interests are varied, and many of my works contain whimsical, hidden creatures.
