Due to a family emergency, Dean was unable to attend the 2017 Fall Show as Featured Carver.  We are pleased to announce that he will now be our Featured Carver for 2018.

Dean began carving in 1987 after attending a Mid-America Woodcarvers Association show. He has taken carving classes with many fine instructors including: Marty Dolphens, John Burke, P.J. Driscoll, Mike and Tom Hawley, Michelle Carville Stetson, Gary and MaryAnn Klinger, and Steve Reed. In addition, he has attended workshops at “The Doane Experience”, which are presented each year by the Mid-America Woodcarvers Association at Doane University in Crete, NE.

Dean’s carvings include numerous Santa figures, wildlife scenes, caricatures, Native American bust and “in the round” figures of all kinds. His carvings have been featured at the Reasons to Believe shop at Seattle, Folkworks Gallery in Chicago, Folkworks Gallery in Houston, Jan Abbe Interiors in Chicago, and “Early American Life” magazine’s Christmas Edition.

Dean previously organized four of the “Woodcarvers Retreat” workshops at the Gretna, NE 4-H Center and still corresponds with many of those participants from around the country.

Dean is currently a member of: Mid-America Woodcarvers Association, the National Wood Carvers Association and Affiliated Wood Carvers International. He teaches various woodcarving workshops and participates in local, regional and international carving competitions.
