My first studio, I suppose, was improvised in the back of our house around 1959 in Artesia California.
Carving a palm tree in 1959 in Artesia California.

With my father's carpenter tools I tackled this palm tree. Thinking back I now wonder how I had the courage as a fifteen year old to take on such size. I had made things from wood and had entered a model car for the Fisher Body Craftmen's Guild, a nationally held car-design competition sponsored by General Motor’s Fisher Body Division competition. That was apple wood; but this palm tree "wood" resembled a bundle of tightly packed ropes or even straws. It was a good lesson to learn that wood has a grain. I wouldn't really want to call this material wood by the way.
