Carver, Woodworker

Contact Informationimg_0317-2

I‛ve been interested in art my whole life. Carving started with wood, creating ducks and a loon. Then I worked on walking sticks of various shapes and details. Antler carving came by chance. It was suggested by a friend and I thought, I would give it a try. I really enjoyed carving in this medium, so on and on it goes.

I am a self taught carver, inspired by my Mohawk heritage, through the stories and legends I have been told or read through the years. Nature speaks to me and I find designs from Mother Earth becoming part of what results on my work bench. I believe every one has an artistic side. It is certainly something that we First Nations find to be part of our being. Sometimes you need to search for it, but then it may spring forth at an unexpected moment and change your life. Always keep looking for it, as I have found it so rewarding.
