I have been carving since 1971 and am self-taught. I put myself through college and had no money for Christmas gifts. Buying a mail order jig saw from Finger Hut I started experimenting. I haven't stopped experimenting for 40 years now.

I started carving for a living in 1978. In the beginning I sold at craft shows, then established "The Tree Wizard Gallery" in June Lake, California from 1984-2000. I am now carving…

I believe that focusing on Love and Forgiveness is the gateway to the best of all possible experiences in life.

Carving tree scenes in slabs were some of the first carvings I did and I still love carving tree scenes. Each tree scene is carved from a single piece of wood with mostly a high speed drill, similar to a dentist drill. This enables me to get the detail you see. Each piece is completely original.

I really enjoy carving in burl wood. Each piece of burl is a work of art in itself. I carve the Wizards and Fantasy Fish in Pine knots. They have such an interesting quality about them.

I love to twist reality a few turns. I hope that my whimsical creations make you smile.
I am always making new pieces. Come by often to see what's new in the Wiz'z Shop.

This etsy shop is the only place that I sell my work other than my studio.

I take pride in my relationship with my customers. If there is ANY problem, I am going to do my absolute best to make it right. It's not all about making money to me. I love all aspects of my art which starts with finding my wood and ends with a happy customer hanging my work on the wall of their home.
