Fine carvings in wood of wildlife and habitat in the Great North Woods

I live in the Great North Woods. In fact, I live in the middle of a wildlife protection area on the shore of Rangeley Lake, at the edge of Maine’s one- hundred-mile wilderness. This gives me the opportunity to observe wildlife, up close and personal. If I haven’t seen almost every species of fish, mammal and bird from the comfort of camp, then I’ve seen them in the woods, fields and waters of this beautiful part of the country.

I have chosen to capture the images in the medium of wood. Through sculpting and relief carving, I bring to life representatives of animals, birds and fish, often in their habitat, doing something that comes naturally.

Should you visit this neck of the woods, drop in. The drive to my Gallery should offer you the chance to see some of my subjects in the wild!
