began carving in 1988. He had been building fly rods and tying
flies and was looking for a new hobby. His wife Laura purchased
an Old World Santa, and a series of lessons from veteran carver
Don Brigham as a Christmas present. The combination of camaraderie
and working with his hands was all it took for Vic to fall in
love with woodcarving. Caricature carving seemed to be a natural
path because the embellished features of the carvings fit in
sense of humor.
Vic grew up around his father’s cabinet shop and had always shared his
dad’s appreciation for a nice product out of a good piece of wood. Vic
enjoys mixing real-life detail and exaggeration within the same carving. His
scenes generally are based on an actual situation or one that could have happened.
Vic lives in Boise, Idaho with his wife Laura. He works for Idaho Power Co. as
a substation technician.
Vic has served as president of the Idaho Woodcarvers Guild and as chairman of
the annual Competition and Exhibition.
Vic is available to teach woodcarving seminars and judge exhibits and shows.
His carvings are available for sale.
