began my love for wood in my teens, but I didn't develop most of my talent until later in life. I moved my family to Northern Idaho's Silver Valley
in the 70's from Sacramento, CA and went to work in the mines. After working for many years, I was laid off. With too much time on my hands, I started developing my talent for wood sculpture.
What started as a childhood dream and, later, a way to idle away the hours soon developed into a love for my craft and the love I have for God and the outdoors.
You can see my art in and around homes and businesses throughout the Silver Valley and the country. I've been featured in the Shoshone News-Press, the Couer d'Alene Press, and many other newspapers. My sculptures have even been displayed in Japan.
Life has been a humbling journey, and I'm eternally grateful that I can express its majesty and beauty through my craft.
