My craft is the art of Scrimshaw, which I have been doing professionally for 47 years. I had a shop in Bar Harbor, The Scrimshaw Workshop, from 1977 through 2017. All of my scrimhaw is engraved entirely by hand and includes men\'s, lady\'s jewelry , pocket knives, collectible display pieces, desk accessories and more. My work is done on ancient Mammoth and Fossil Walrus ivory, bone and deer antler. I am proud to say that in my 47 years as a scrimshander, I have never sold a single piece of elephant ivory.
