"I grew up in Denton, Texas where everything from racoons to crows were family pets. My love for nature and animals has always been very strong.
I worked as an artist and cartoonist in a graphic design studio for ten years before moving to New Mexico in 1981. Past cartooning experience shows up in my carvings in the form of "Animal Caricatures", such as the multi-talented musician "Rupert P. Bullfrog" playing below.
My goal has always been for my work to evolve toward realism without hiding the natural qualities of the wood. I enjoy carving realistic native American and African wild life, birds of all kinds - along with a variety of farm animals. - Michael Kluck
