I am a late bloomer and baby boomer and self-taught. I have always lagged behind everyone else and made life changing discoveries late in life. I used to create furniture, then found that I loved wood carving. After I was diagnosed with severe arthrosis of both of my thumbs and had surgery on my left hand (I am right handed), I searched for some art medium that I could do safely without relying on the strength of both hands. I began experimenting with colored pencils in April of 2009 and voilą, I was hooked. Wildlife is my favorite subject probably because my carvings were of that subject. I will be exploring other subjects as I go.
