Welcome to my scrimshaw website. All my work is done on fossil (mammoth, mastodon or walrus) ivory, which is totally legal and readily available from Alaska. I began doing scrimshaw in 1973 when I moved from Los Angeles to Bellingham, Washington and got hired at The Alaska Silver and Ivory Company. In 1976 I began freelancing and over the years have been selling mostly to stores in Alaska, Hawaii, and New England. I currently live in central Italy.
You can also see what I currently have for sale by visiting my Etsy store. The pieces shown here which are not in my online store are not available for sale, but I welcome requests and would be glad to recreate any of these scenes, or do any special orders.
