John L. Dickens
My name is John Dickens and I have been carving for 48 years.Thirty three professionally. I try to make each carving a one of a kind and the best work that I can do. My favorite carving subjects are the local songbirds that I attract to my backyard feeder. I also carve animals, country people and relief carvings. My favorite carving wood is basswood. The carvings are painted with acrylics or finished with linseed oil and beeswax. Most of my work is done with an ordinary pocketknife.
