This piece is carved from aspen wood collected in the mountains. It is painted with acrylic and metal leaf. The antlers are found manzanita with tiny carved and painted leaves attached. The antlers are removed for shipping.
I'm a mixed media artist living in the Southwestern United States. When I'm not in my studio I like to spend time outside observing the goings on of the bugs and birds and the passing clouds. The intricate balance between humans and the natural world is an ongoing theme in my artwork. I try to walk lightly on the earth.
