|This collector in Florida is a marine biologist and fond of bizarre invertebate art. The hermit crabs will go to her second home in Florida. It is a 1920 Spanish house, called Hermit Crab Inn. The house has pecky cypress panels and ceilings, and the hermits will be the signature pieces for the house in the living room.|
|This home in Grover Beach, California displays a 3 pier pelican on the wall adjacent to a doorway. It occupies a spot that all will see as they enter or exit the area. The piece fits nicely in this sea home by the California Coast.|
This California coastal home has a wonderful high wall that really shows off the Pelican family set of flying birds. Flying towards the window and towards the sea is very powerful and easily viewed by others who visit the home. A nice touch over the cabinet also.
Bears occupy this home in Fremont, California. Note the salmon bear flanked by a wonderful bear mirror that adorns this space, each is carved in Alder wood with whitish staining and makes quite a statement both visually and functionally in this home.
|This African Giraffe set is carved
in Alder and beautifully graces this alcove area in a
collector's home in Carlsbad, CA. The color of the wood
compliments the cabinetry on either side and is seen from many
areas in the home. The large giraffe measures over 40" in height
and both pieces
were carved from photos taken at
the San Diego Zoo and Wildlife Park
|This photo shows the artist (left) with the collector who purchased the giraffe set at the Del Mar Harvest Festival, 2011...The artist has many collectors in the San Diego area|
This home in Arizona has a wall with a specialized mermaid and sea theme. Note the beautiful blue background color which brings out the wonderful color of the Alder wood used for the mermaids and the Red Cedar for the crabs and fish.
|This home in San Lorenzo, CA. proudly displays the Blue Whale Set carved in Oak. This couple has a wonderful collection of my work and the Blue whale set is one of their first pieces purchased back in the late 70's. The set is approximately 4 feet in length and compliments the room decor as the focal point.|
|This collector in Arizona proudly displays the Dracula
Castle carving. She will be visiting Europe and will actually
visit the castle. Some interesting facts about the castle

Stoker's story is based on the life of Vlad Tepes (1431-1476),
a ruler revered for standing up to the Ottoman Empire.
