“I really love to make carvings. I learn new things all the time and I like to experiment on my own. Sometimes it takes two or three days to find a solution. My grandfather taught me how to carve when we lived on the Kazan River. He would carve soapstone pots for cooking meat. I have many jobs besides carving because I like to be independent. I carve from March to August but I take July off. I built myself a cabin at Prince River and that’s where I go in July.” artist’s statement, 1992
