Snow Cottage Carvings Press Releases

Seven hours drive east of Vancouver B.C. Canada, in the West Kootenay town of Castlegar, is situated the wood-carving studio of Dave Francis.
Since November of 1992, when Dave first picked up a knife and started wood-carving, the demand for these hand-made figurines has not slowed down. Totally self-taught and with an immense desire to learn this age-old art form, Dave plunged in with both feet and the response has been overwhelming. With an art background in school and 20 years experience as a hairstylist, Dave has been able to transport ideas from his head, to the paper, to the wood. "You have to be able to visualize the finished product in your head before you even begin the piece", says Dave. "I could not draw to save my life, but somehow I'm able to carve the idea into the wood."

Dave's wood-carvings are now on every continent in the world (with the possible exception of Antarctica). People from every corner of the world have added these figurines to their collections. One Chicago area collector has bought numerous carvings, sight unseen, to add to her display. "The thing that makes me the most happy about carving these figurines is the ability you have to put a smile onto someone's face when they see them, that is a very wonderful feeling."

With the loving support of his family, Dave will continue to share his artwork with the public.
