Bio of Richard Jones
I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for all of my life. I am deeply connected with nature, she is my mother, my father is adventure, my brother the mountains, my sister the sea. I have been involved with sculpting and carving wood ever since I could hold a carving tool. I am pleased to share my site with you and hope you find it a bit of an adventure looking at the pieces. Enjoy...
