About

Carving and creating...both make me happy. I never know what will emerge from a piece of wood. I never start with a plan and I don't draw before I cut. The wood spirits that are created have always lived in the wood... carving just releases them. Each spirit has its own personality. I enjoy watching people try to choose one from the many that I bring to local craft fairs. There is a connection made that is inexplicable. Many people will say that a certain spirit is just grabbing their attention or "speaking" to them. I understand that...I have my favorites too! My other creations come from the times that I need a break from carving. I love vintage items and enjoy repurposing and putting them together on gift card boxes.

Thanks for looking at my shop. I hope that you enjoy my art!
