I teach art in Northern Minnesota. I enjoy art, and spent time oil painting before I started carving. After moving to northern Minnesota I was introduced to chainsaw carving. I love chainsaw carving because of the speed, and the large size of the carvings I am able to create; they have large impact. I enjoy the wood because it's natural, and has beauty marks like knots, cracks, worm holes, and wood grain. I have started to carve at town events, and carving competitions, and enjoy the challenge, as well as being able to carve next to amazing carvers from around the world. To see where I will be carving next, see my Calendar of Events.
