I was born into a wood carving family and was instructor at the family wood carving school at age 15. I traveled through Europe and Africa studying different art cultures and ways to incorporate them in his art, before settling in the USA. My products have been shipped world wide. I was selected as Artist-in-Residence for the Rocky Mnt. National park by the Dept. of the Interior. I have entered and won awards at many art competitions throughout the USA. I now live in Florida where I have opened an art gallery and studio and am concentrating incorporating Florida wildlife into my art. If you are in the Homosassa Florida area please come visit me at my gallery and see the exciting items I have available.
