Keith, a resident of Custer,SD, is a retired Associate Professor of Biology from South Dakota State University. Keith has had a life-long interest in and appreciation of woodcarving, but did not become actively involved in carving until about 20 years ago. Prior to that time he learned on his own by gleaning whatever information he could reading “Chip Chats”. He was particularly influenced early on by the work of Andy Anderson and Claude Bolton. Only after attending a variety of classes and seminars did carving become a “serious endeavor”. Since retirement, carving has become his full-time hobby. While he has enjoyed carving a wide range of subjects in a variety of styles, caricature carving is Keith’s first love.
Keith has taught carving classes on a regular basis during the summer season at the National Museum of Woodcarving and by invitation from various carving clubs throughout the US. Since 1986, he has been the Carver-in-Residence at the Museum in Custer. He was elected to CCA membership in 1993.
Keith is available to teach woodcarving seminars. His carvings are available for sale.
