You can see my carvings from elk antler here.
These are primarily small (less than 2 inch) animal heads
that can be worn as a hat pin, tie-tac or broach, and some larger relief carvings.
I first began carving elk antlers back in the mid eighties as a hobby.
After getting married in 1987, I dropped the carving for the more important job of raising a family,
and then picked it up again in 2003. I’ve been carving fairly steady now for the past 9 years.
Although self-taught as far as carving goes, I have had a small amount of formal training in art:
2 semesters of painting, 2 semesters of pottery and 1 semester of silver-smithing back in my college days.
Besides carving antlers, I have also done some wood carving for walking sticks and walking staffs
