UNIQUE IDEAS

Home Page

Welcome to my gallery of art!  Please take your time and browse.  I hope I can interest you in one of my "Unique Ideas".  Or, maybe there is an idea of your own that you would like to suggest.  Most of my carvings are by special order to create exactly what the customer wants.

My interior designs can add a special touch to any house, cabin or cottage.  If you really want to be creative, you can do what I did to my own home and turn the dreary basement into a very unique recreation room.  My talents are unlimited.  Maybe an entertainment center with lion end posts is your request, along with a lion coffee table to match.  I will give each and every request some thought and see what we can come up with.

My landscape scenes also add a new twist . . . two or three life-like carvings around a pond, fountain or waterfall will literally stop traffic.

PRICING INCLUDED IN THIS WEBSITE ARE APPROXIMATIONS ONLY.  EACH CARVING IS PRICED FOR THE INDIVIDUAL BUYER.  IT WILL, HOWEVER, GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF THE PRICE RANGE FOR YOUR ORDER.

I reside in Parma, Michigan, which is about 1/2 hour South of Lansing or an hour West of Detroit.  I am married with four teenagers (16, 17, 18 and 19) and a 29 year-old son who lives in Ohio.  

I have been carving for the past 13 years.  My dad started carving as a hobby after he retired.  He carved an alligator at the edge of a pond and a bear in a fallen tree when he was out walking in the woods one day.  He had always wanted to try chainsaw carving.  I always had an artistic ability and wondered if I could do the same.  Not having time when the kids were young, I didn’t attempt a carving until about five years after my dad started carving. 

 At first, I carved a number of different figures (ie, dolphins, bears, fish, elephants, owls, eagles, etc).  Throughout the years, I have done several on-site carvings for both individuals and companies.  Eagles and bears have been very popular.   What I really enjoy carving are unique bars and TV surrounds/mantles.
