CHAMPIONSHIP

"I was inspired to create this piece after a wonderful fall day in the woods. Later that night, we sat around a campfire listening to three barred owls exchange calls. From those experiences I began to visualize a composition with a barred owl resting atop a sumac “ball of flame"."

ORIGINAL DRAWINGS

Just as deeply-seated in realism as the carvings, drawings are an equal passion. No medium captures the ebb and flow of the texture of fur like drawing.

  • Whether the medium is graphite or charcoal, the cascading or radiating textures are unique to each subject.

  • The timeless, minimalist compositions place the focus on the detail and fit with any home interior.

  • The eyes are the windows to emotion and attitude. The multiple reflections, the depth and the shapes are carefully planned. 

  • The materials used are the highest grade. From the archival, acid-free paper to the graphite or charcoal. Each piece is protected with a non-yellowing, high-grade final fixative.

When I get a request to create a custom piece, my goal is to exceed expectations. The custom experience includes:
 
  • ​an original drawing of the composition for approval
  • a carving with the same level of detail as a competition piece
  • progress updates via email
  • a limited-edition, leather bound book containing progress photos specific to their piece, inscribed and signed 
 
The drawing, the book and the carving are shipped via a company that specializes in shipping artwork only. I whole-heartedly believe the experience of a custom piece should be a pleasure from start to finish.
