Here are some of Santa's carvings . . .
Magnolia In Bloom
This magnolia is carved from a wood called 'tupelo' which comes from the swamps ofLouisiana. This wood is extremely tough and can be carved very thin to create the delicate leaves and petals of the magnolia.
This beautiful sunflower was designed for a client displaced during the Katrina storm in New Orleans. Her hobby is growing beautiful sunflowers and wondered if I could create a lasting thing of beauty for her. Here is the result.

This cougar was carved from one piece of basswood. The fir is created using carving methods along with woodburning. All my carvings are hand painted.
