I’ve always enjoyed carving wood, but there was a point in my artistic career that I started working with it predominantly. All of my pieces are original and have a quality that no machine can mimic. The craft of woodworking has definitely become a labour of love for me. Here are some examples of pieces I have carved over the years.
