Biography:
 I presently live in Kimberley B.C. and am a self-taught carver. After viewing a 45 minute video by Tony Wispinski on 'cottonwood bark carving' in August of 2002 I began this method of carving as a hobby. This style of carving, some say, dates back to the middle ages. Tradition has it that having a 'WoodSpirit' hanging in your home keeps the bad spirits away. To date I have carved about 200 'WoodSpirits' in cottonwood bark, diamond willow and basswood. The bark that I use is collected from dead fallen cottonwood trees, anywhere from the interior to the Kootenays. As Tony told me 'there are no mistakes in bark carving, only the creation of new challenges' and I have found that bark carving can be one of the most enjoyable types of carving to try.
Awards:
 First and second place ribbons in the Richmond Carvers Club Show in Steveston July/04
Instruction and Workshops:
 I have given eight Cottonwood Bark Carving Seminars at Lee Valley Tools in Vancouver, the last one being on June 13/09, with another possibly in the spring of 2010.
