Original Artisan Story
From an early age I loved natural things – plants, animals, birds or sea life. I have a special appreciation for the often neglected dogs that populate all Balinese villages and, when I see the way Western people treat their animals, I hope that someday Indonesians will appreciate their animals as much!
When I was still quite young, I knew I had an ability to translate nature into artful things of beauty. Because my life has always centered on animals and other natural themes, I use these as my subjects, usually interpreted in tropical woods. Now I have the opportunity to create art subjects incorporating not only Indonesian wildlife but also creatures from all corners of the earth.
Although I have no formal art training and work purely from my own inspiration and intuition, I know what looks good and what doesn't look right in a carving. I particularly want to create wildlife and other animal themes in an exact, realistic and original way. Each piece is carefully created with this realism in mind. I will not allow anything out of my hands that I wouldn't want to own and display in my own house. It's my highest desire that every design go to a home and give great joy for as long as the owner has it.
