My late father was a crafter who also carved animal and human forms in wood. It was from my father that I inherited both the skills and the inspiration that have allowed me to continue with the family's traditions.
As a youth, I spent many hours helping my father after school and on weekends, developing my own love and passion for this craft along the way.
I work with Jacaranda, mahogany, ironwood and many other wood types that suit whatever I am carving.
Not all my work is about animals. I also portray people in various dress styles.
My secret to producing my animal forms is very simple - I just take a tree, and take away all the parts to do not look like a giraffe / hippo / elephant / warthog / buffalo .....
