This is done from a roughout from Stu Martin--called "My Captain" given to my husband on Valentines Day. Have been carving almost two years and "have only just begun"
My favorite carving, I think is the Native
American bust that I carved which is on my website. I have been
carving for about 12 years but only got serious about it in the
last few years. I currently live in Sierra Vista, AZ. http://www.CarolsCarvings.homestead.com/CarolsCarvings.html

I am a great-grandmother who lives in Door county, WI. I have been carving for about 8 years. I go between carving and watercolor painting.
I am Donna White from rural Indiana. I have
been carving for about 7-8 years, and doing pyrography including
portraits of people for about the same amount of time. A couple
of years ago I got interested in stick carving and now I do more
of that than any other carving. I finish all of my sticks with
pyrography detail. I have been carving commissioned sticks for
just about a year and I am very happy about my latest commissioned
stick. Along with many animal carvings it also has 4 miniature
portraits of people on it.
