Q.
Do you ever teach carving classes, or give demonstrations?
A.
I have taught many classes in the past, for both adults and children.  Some have
been healing workshops, some as far away as James Bay.  I haven't done any
teaching in the last few years, but I certainly wouldn't rule it out.  It is important
to pass along the gifts we are given.  If you have an opportunity let me know.
 
Q.  I have a special occasion coming up, do you do private commissions?
A. I can usually accommodate most requests.  I try to work with you and create something within your budget.  Time can be an issue, but is not always an obstacle.  I may even have a piece on hand that may suit your needs.

Q. How long have you been carving?
A.
For about 14 years now.  I did auto body for years, and as a result of the machines used my hands were ruined.  I began sculpture as a therapy, and, well, the rest is history.

Q.  How long does it take to complete a large piece, such as The Gathering?
A. If I kept track of time I probably wouldn't do this.  Once I get into a piece, it takes hold of me and can result in some very late nights.  The Gathering probably took a good part of 3 weeks to complete.  Once a piece is started, I can't wait to see the finished product!
   
Q. Can I visit your studio?
A.
My studio is in my home, and there is not always someone there to give a proper tour.  I would suggest that if you want to visit, you should call ahead, so I can be available to show you around.
 

Q. Do you do charitable donations?
A. I usually give a few pieces a year to various charities.  Ducks Unlimited,  OSPCA, Keene Church restoration fundraiser, Cancer Society, Senior Associations etc..  Please contact me if you would like me to donate a piece for your fundraising event.
    
Q.
I understand you did a line of bronze funeral urns in the past, can I get one now?
A. The urns are not in production at this moment.  However, if there was a renewed interest in them, I would certainly start to supply them again.  I have recently done urns in soapstone, for a few individuals.  These are much less expensive than urns you can get at a Funeral Home.  If you have a request, let me know.
