“I have been to Ottawa for school… And I went to Montreal to do actual carving work. In addition, I’ve been to Italy and France to do carving demonstrations. I went to Paris on my own to see a carving that was displayed there: I wanted to see their prices and see how good it actually was. I went to Italy to see Michelangelo’s marble sculptures. I had heard they were very beautiful. Because I consider carving and sculpture seriously, I wanted to see for myself and learn from observing real works of art… And now, more than anything else, [carving] is the most important thing I do… Most important, I like art. That is why I do it.”
