About the Artist
Domenick is a self-taught woodcarver from Vineland, NJ. He carved caricatures from 1980 to 1984 and then stopped for 25 years to run a small business with his wife. His desire for woodcarving resurfaced after closing their business. His carvings are made from Tupelo, painted with acrylics, and sealed with a matt lacquer. There is no attempt to remove tool marks because Domenick believes this adds to the uniqueness and character of each piece and distinguishes the work as a true woodcarving.
