Wood Carving - Much More Than Just Wood

I have always worked to preserve my Puerto Rican culture through the wood carving. I am a certify diver and a nature admirer, and those two facts had given me the opportunity to enjoy the best of our nature! I believe that the best way I can preserve the beauty I see underwater and through nature is by making it eternal through my wood work. My art is not only a way of offering an honor to the beauty of nature we are able to enjoy, but it also allows me to teach others about endanger animals and conservation issues. “Amantes del Mar”, in English “Sea Lovers”, which is the name of my shop, is the tool I along with my wife, created to rich people all over the world. To show others that wood carving is not something meaningless, there is much more to it than just to give a form to a piece of wood. Is to make sure in the future people will enjoy the beauty I see today!!!
