I feel grateful every single day that I do what I love for a living. My family and friends have made it possible for this dream to come true and with hard work thrown in, I just keep finding new opportunities.

2019 was challenging but exciting. I was hired to create 12 original design wooden Santas for the film version of House of Wooden Santas by Hallmark, renamed Nostalgic Christmas. They have made quite an impression internationally and it been a lot of fun. It's great to get 'discovered' after 27 years of carving.

My partner and I are finishing up building my dream studio and I have never been happier carving out my niche. (see what I did there). If my carvings bring you just a bit of the happiness I find in creating them, I have fulfilled my purpose. Thanks for looking!
