"Elephant" in cherry  

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," June 4 - 10, 2023

I will work on special order woodcarvings, a "coach" carving, and a carving of a bear (maybe two bears). I will also carve decorative "structures."  In addition,  I will continue work on landscape paintings (such as the "watery and mountainy" one above) and pen and ink drawings.
