"Hen and Egg" is one of my first carvings to hold a copyright. This little gal is unquestionably the most collected idea I've ever carved and there may well be over 40 of them in various sizes and colors from life-size to miniature. Her claim to fame is a certain Hen and Egg purchased by Michael J Fox for his wife from a shop I provided in Newport Rhode Island called "The Liberty Tree" I love this carving and I'm currently working on one for myself.
As a teen I had 4 hens that were my pets. Chickens and roosters make wonderful subjects! Also since I am name dropping (please forgive) I am equally in awe that Doris Day has a collection of my folk dog carvings.

    Aimathena, You're a very kind person to say that about me and my artwork. Funny thing, I have never had a "hen n egg" long enough to call my own. Any time I have one completed, she flys right out the door. I have been working on one so feel free to email me if you like.
