"Whether carving a piece of wood, or engaged in legendary story, myth, folklore, people, place, and things or even a phrase; I am personally motivated and inspired by attempting to represent a small piece of Nature. I love the thrill of carving a simple storyboard that entails a humble scene of figures describe in the story. Most of my woodcarving will be inspired by this belief and hopefully, a small amount of the thrill and inspiration I felt in carving will be useful information to educate viewers from their perspective point."
