I have been a professional artist, graphic
designer, and photographer my entire adult life. I actually started
selling art, posters, and flyers in high school. After serving in
the Navy I worked in the aero space industry as a draftsman and
illustrator before working in an advertising agency. I later opened
my own design studio.
In 1976 when illustrating a book for a sculptor
and woodcarver, I started carving wood professionally.
Today, I receive many of my commissions and sales from people like
you visiting my site. I offer a wide range of art and carvings
depending on your particular requirements and needs.
To make ordering as easy as possible for you and
to get the attention you deserve, I have provided you with the below
form so I’ll have a better understanding of how I can help you and
to provide you with what your investment will be. To date, I have
completed over 10,000 carvings, mostly commissioned. Here is a
partial listing of some of my clients.
I have provided a Request Form just below so you
can tell me what you are interested in having carved or made. When
it comes to woodworking I have access to several of Taos finest
woodworkers so we can do any style commission you may need.
Over the years I have taught hundreds of
individuals the traditional skills of woodcarving at the American
Wood Carving School in Wayne New Jersey, North Western
University and Fairhaven College in Bellingham
Washington, Wooden Boat Center in Marina del Rey California,
Center For Wooden Boats in Seattle Washington, and University
of New Mexico in Taos New Mexico.
Today I offer my classes and workshops at my
studio in northern New Mexico. I also teach on location
throughout the United States and abroad.
As a professional my goal is to produce
exceptional work and to do it at a price which makes it affordable.
