Media: Sculpture in soapstone, antler and bone leather work.
Never had any training. All self-taught. I have won awards at the Eitlejorg Indian Market, Tesoro Indian Market in Denver, Cahokia Mounds Indian Market. I didn’t do any artwork until I was 50 didn’t sculpt until I was 60.
I carve because I enjoy carving. Sometimes I will carve traditional things and other times I will carve whimsical things. I use rotary tools, files, knives to carve, anything to get the job done quickly.

I aim to create works that are different than what has already been done by Iroquois carvers both past and present. I challenge myself by constantly honing my relief carving skills, my portrait carving skills and by generating new ideas and pieces never before seen in antler carving. Additionally, I am incorporating more and brighter colors into antler work. This is a somewhat foreign idea to antler carving, but in order to advance the art and make what I do unique, it is something I feel good about doing.

I like to carve antler and bone the best. I have been carving stone for 6 years and have been carving antler and bone since June of 2012. Never attended school I was self taught. The person who I admire and try to emulate is the late and great Mohawk antler carver, Stan Hill, who was a close friend of mine. I started carving antler last June after I found a book as I was moving things around in my studio that Stan had signed “To my good friend Dave”. I hope to be one day half as good as he was.
