Artfire - Featured Shop -Sandra Healy

Sandra Healy is a member of the Artisans in Wood guild on artfire, and she does some amazing work.  She  creates small wild animal sculptures and magnets, hand carved and painted from her own original designs.

After the shapes are roughed out from basswood (American Linden), a hardwood tree native to the U.S., she then quietly carve the creatures using hand tools. Colored inks are applied to the sanded wood with an airbrush, and 3 coats of urethane brushed on to finish them.

I think these little creatures are just amazing.  Give them a look.  visit her shop and see if there's something you just have to own:
