Me standing in front of a large cypress tree in a swamp near Sanford Florida.
Both of my parents enjoyed the outdoors and wildlife. They brought me up to appreciate wildlife and nature. I began drawing and painting wildlife from an early age and have continued though out my life. I started carving wildlife on antlers about thirteen years ago. About 2 years ago I went out into the swamps around my home collecting pieces of fallen cypress tree wood. The pieces have been weathered and eaten by different insects. This is known as pecky cypress wood, I like to call it swamp wood. I have to pressure wash the pieces and let them dry before I can begin to carve them.Half of the fun is going out into the swamp and trying to find pieces that can be turned into works of art. In the picture I am standing next to a large living cypress tree. My hope is that those who see my carvings will enjoy them as much as I did creating them. Commissions are welcomed.
