I have been a woodcarver since 1977. I have two wonderful children they are married, live nearby, and have given five beautiful grandchildren. I teach some wood carving classes at wood carving clubs as well as the Northhouse Folk School in Grand Marais, Minnesota. I have my carvings for sale at Engler's Designs in Branson, MO, as well as several gift shops in Minnesota.
Shortly after this visit to Owen's house (July 26th) I had surgery that has kept me from carving (and a lot of other things) for what is now over four weeks. I am still not completely healed but hope to start getting back to normal soon.
