"Portage August" acrylic painting  

Welcome to my website!


On the following pages you can view samples of my artwork.  For years, I have carved wooden caricatures of people and animals, pins and refrigerator magnets, bottle stoppers, ornaments, and other items.  I also create paintings and drawings using various mediums.  


These days, I am concentrating my efforts on my most popular items and on my own "new" creations.  If you see something on these webpages that you like, feel free to contact me.  


I hope you find your visit to this website enjoyable.   

This week at "The Works," September 24 - 30, 2023

I will work on special woodcarving orders and on animal carvings, such as the sloth (above).  I will also work on landscape paintings in acrylics and watercolors, and on pen and ink drawings.
