My wood carving is inspired by the Scandinavian carving traditions. The figures I carve are done in the flat-plane carving style which has been popularized by a variety of Swedish and Norwegian carvers over the past century and by Scandinavian immigrants to the U.S. In this carving style, the knife cuts are intentionally left visible, creating angular facets that the light and shadow play upon. In general much of the carving is done with just one small knife. The subject matter I enjoy are historical and mythical figures, as well as birds. The other form of carving I practice is called "green wood carving." This is a type of wood carving well suited to making utilitarian objects such as, bowls, spoons, ladles, cutting boards and small containers. Please check my Etsy Shop for what items I have in stock or feel free to contact me for custom orders.
