My Dad is the wood carver, carpenter and boat builder. Born in the U.S. to Swedish parents, he grew up in a Swedish household, and spent time in Sweden. He has been heavily influenced by the Scandinavian style of folk art and wood carving techniques. He uses much of the proceeds towards non-profit community ventures he volunteers for, such as gas for "Meals on Wheels" deliveries and materials for teaching a wood shop class as part of "Building Bridges for Youth".
I do the finishing, painting and selling of my Dad's carvings and have started to learn to do some carving myself. I enjoy drawing, painting, photography, sewing, knitting, crocheting and simply being crafty in a variety of different media.
