Terry is a former aircraft coastal pilot, a business man and an ocean vessel enthusiast
who enjoys the rejuvenating solitude that West Coast inlets offer. He is based in
his carving site within a small community on the Pacific Ocean, west coast of Vancouver
Island, Ucluelet, British Columbia.
Terry's creative talents, as a natural born artist, are extensive and he excels in
any medium he picks up. He chose chain saw sculpture at a crossroads in his life
and has never looked back. He is a master carver with such an eye for detail and
realism that his carved bears have fooled neighbors, dogs and even the odd bear!
Workmen reported a hilarious story of a big bear walking up to one of Terry’s bear
sculptures installed in an owners yard. After squaring off a few times gave it one
good cuff across the face and sauntered away. The owner chose to leave the scars
in his famous piece.
life-sized grizzlies to realistic eagles; herons; salmon; beavers, mountain sheep
to any wildlife, his work must be seen to appreciate the depth of what goes into
each one of his carvings. Always the artist, Terry dreams up ideas for designs that
are unique, personalized and utterly captivating.
Terry is a generous man with a big heart who has shared his God-given talents helping
countless artists get off to a good start in their own carving careers. Always there
to give a helping hand, he has offered tips and techniques and designed winning wildlife
scenes for other artists.
