My work and my passion is as a gemstone cameo artist. I carve gemstones usually layered agates with very realistic portraits. The portraits are carved from photographs sent to me by my customers of their loved one. I then set the cameo in Gold frames designed and made by myself. These cameo jewels are a unique and very special gift. I love my family, my Canadian wife and my two wonderful boys. They are growing up with a great interest in the natural world and have great artistic talent. Looking forward to seeing what they do when they are older.
