The Artist
chaz.jpgMy woodcarving histories started back in art classes in high school, and over the past 40 years I have taught myself to master the tools and skills of woodcarving. I reside in Austin, Texas and have been a member of the Central Texas Woodcarvers Association for over 25 years.

I am a project manager of a custom home builder here in Austin, Texas. For many years prior to becoming a project manager, I was a finish carpenter and it was through my carpentry work that I started acquiring "scraps" of hardwoods that encouraged me img_3017-1.jpgto "recycle" and to "create" them into pieces of artwork. My finish carpentry experience has allowed me to incorporate carving designs into the architectural millwork.

My artwork has earned recognition and awards at various art shows. From creating family heirlooms to realistic sculptures or architectural components your design can become a reality.

Designs for my carvings can be adapted from a photograph, but most are unique one-of-a-kind carvings. Through my ability to draw, I can create an interpretation of an idea that a client might have. I work closely with my clients across the United States to produce a design that is tailored to meet their individual needs. This ensures that the artwork created will be treasured by present and future generations.
