A pair of wolves. This was priced at $3000, but I gave it to a dear friend for free. There are singer's faces carved into the surface as well as the two wolves, howling.

This huge set of moose antlers was purchased by Carrie Fisher, at a gallery in Toronto. There are two eagle heads, a couple "elders" singing a prayer, and some stylized designs. She also bought a couple deer antlers that day that were carved. I am told she used them as part of the set for her one person live dramatic performance. She also kept them after the show tour was finished. The eternal Princess.

This panther, was cut from mastodon ivory. It is about 3 cm wide and .5cm thick at the thickest. Something like this would normally sell for $800 Canadian in ivory. I can do these types of amulets in antler for as little as $200.

About Me:
I am a master carver of 29 years experience, specializing in moose, deer, caribou, and reindeer antler. I am also an expert stone cutter working in Steatite and Alabaster. I prefer to work from memory/imagination but use photos as well for detailing references. I began as a native artist, collecting legends and stories and turning them into 3d sculptures. I spent 19 years researching my culture to be accurate and authentic. Along with the legends I also cut wildlife and human faces into the antler on request. My work is all over the world and among some pretty impressive collections. The Canadian Government owns several of my pieces and these are on display in different offices around the world, including the Canadian Embassy in Berlin. Quite a few celebs have my work in their own...
