Wood Carvings by Alan Denison

A gallery of unique wood carvings that make wonderful gifts

Every one of Alan's carving is done by hand and there are no two carvings alike.

Alan enjoys caricature carving as well as realistic carving. Since he retired from the VA several years ago, his stress levels have come down and he has been able to spend a lot of time doing something he loves - work in his shop!

Alan and Nedra are members of several woodcarving clubs including the National Woodcarvers Association and lifetime members of the Texas Woodcarvers Guild. Alan was past President of the Capitol Woodcarvers Association in Olympia, WA before moving to New Mexico.
