The world always seems brighter when you’ve just made something that wasn’t there before.

Welcome to my world of happiness -- I truly hope that you enjoy my work on this website and I look forward to any comments that you may have.  


My Story

I began carving roughly thirty years ago for two primary reasons - because the art form fascinated me and for relief from the stresses of work and the professional world.  

I am primarily self taught but initially took some classes to learn the basics and experience different methods. From chip carving to relief carving to caricatures and Santas,  I would work on projects as I had the time.

I became fascinated by Wood Spirits and began to carve a few pieces on recycled hydro poles and pieces of wood that I found.  

With the continued encouragement and support from family I have expanded even further into the art world  capturing the beauty around us in oil and acrylic paintings and  sharing through workshops my creative nature by  creating sculptures in an art form call Paverpol.  

The learning never ends and I never know what will happen with a piece of wood, a blank canvas or a wire armature  when I begin to sit in my studio. I had never thought of myself as an artist and it has taken some doing to change my thinking.


I find a great amount of satisfaction and pleasure in the joy that others express when they are contemplating the perfect piece for themselves, as a gift or completing a class.

Welcome to my website -- I  hope by sharing my art and creations I give you a sense of the fun that  happens in my studio.

I look forward to any comments or questions that you might have.
