|A small selection of some of my more recent works. Please see my gallery for more, as well as my Etsy at thegreenwolf.etsy.com for currently available pieces. I am available for custom work as well--just note me!|
|Over the years I have been asked to create a variety of custom pieces. These have ranged everywhere from wall hangings unique to the buyer to one of a kind leather and fur pouches, and then some! Plus further down the page you'll see some projects that I can pretty easily customize. Here are a few things to keep in mind when requesting custom work:|
What do I want (pouch, bone knife, antler runes/ogam, etc?)
How much do I want to pay? (This is VERY important, as it gives me an idea of how elaborate I can get and what sort of materials I can use. Also, I can suggest certain options for slightly higher or lower price brackets.)
What do I want it made of?
What size do I want the project to be?
What colors do I want incorporated?
What other decorations do I want?
Is there a particular theme/animal/etc. I want?
Do I have a particular timeframe or deadline I need this by?
If interested, please feel free to note me!

Yes, I AM open for commissions! Note me with your ideas and requests! Specializing in making vague ideas turn into very real art
No, I do not hunt these animals myself. Most of what I work with is recycled or reclaimed in some manner; as I have done since 1998, I ritually purify everything I make as part of my spiritual practice, and I donate part of the proceeds to nonprofit groups that benefit wildlife and their habitats.
I'm an artist, nonfic author, and wannabe polymath living in Portland, OR. I'm a pagan and amateur naturalist, geeky, and outdoorsy. I make stuff out of animal remains, beads, and other such things as part of my spiritual practice (and FWIW, I am 100% European mutt, so none of my work can be considered Native American). I'm also entirely self-taught; I took a few art classes in high school and college, but they were really basic and dealt more with traditional media like painting and drawing.
I sell most of what I make; if you're interested in what's currently available, please wander over to www.thegreenwolf.com (you can also find my books on pagan and nature spirituality topics there, too!)

Personal Quote: Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
The silver maple tree arranges herself for winter, as she has for the previous twenty-seven years. Her leaves, which she so carefully drew forth in spring’s growing warmth, now thin and turn a deep red. She pulls her sap in more tightly; it may be a hard winter this year, and she needs to conserve the resources she has for the long sleep to come. She’s rather proud of the growth she’s put on this year, touching high-flying breezes that were beyond her highest branches just a couple of years before.
Drat. It’s gone noisy again.
At Paths Through the Forests, I tell a story about the leaves of a very special tree, and why it’s best to leave the leaves alone this fall!
