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.
