About the Author

Bill has been carving for over 27 years, starting with an adult night school course offered by the Winnipeg School Board in 1975. Mostly self-taught, his style of carving is noticeably different from that of carvers elsewhere. He specializes in relief carving (carving pictures in wood), which he does in panels that are two inches thick or less. His favorite themes are those that come out of the Bible and that allow him to combine images with the written biblical text. Almost all of his carvings are done on a commission basis, and are purchased by private families, businesses, churches, corporations, institutions and the like.
