"They can't help themselves, they just have to cross this river to my side and see what I am doing." "It is usually not a good time for a visit as I am not able to share my peanut clusters. I always have to cram all of the chocolate in my mouth at once so he will not get anxious or disappointed not getting any of the snacks."

"The Denbigh Inuit" were the smallest, at less than a meter in height. They were magical people and remained hidden from other Inuit villagers due to their powers and influence in the natural world. Remnants of them are discovered by their expert crafted weaponry. In the sculpture composition, it is the Denbigh people that protect the bear and even swims and ride them... all across the Arctic." "Woolly Mammoth Ivory" collected in the village of Koyuk, Norton Sound, Alaska."

"Woolly Mammoth Ivory" bracelet of motifs designed for the Alaskan market, and occasionally, I make bracelets as have been well received by my many clients, that I now, produce a greater number of them especially more abstract curves and ideas, exciting direction to go now since traditionally, I have performed many 'realistic' motifs as a rule for my friends in Alaska."
"Woolly Mammoth Ivory" 'Pendant design for the "Taro" Safari Park, Taro Bali...My studio supplies the Taro Park gift-shop, gallery and Museum for many years with my personal support for the endeavor of Nigel and Yanie Mason (owners) in the rescue operations of 27 Sumatran Elephants. As a result of this rescue, these elephants will not face degradation that confinement in Sumatra offers in place for the diminishing herds. The park now celebrates three new calves born to the park in 2009, a successful rescue and perpetuation of this endangered species."

"Twenty Feet Distant" "Toklat Grizzly" "On a walk from camp, and a hundred yards from the 'tent.' So, I turned and walked parallel with this 'fella' stopping for a photo for just a few seconds as not wanting to be too far behind. At times I was only twenty feet from him as he progressed closer to my camp. He paid me no attention as he seemed to focus on my tent and inflatable boat towards the end of the gravel bar, now just twenty yards away...or so. I continued to 'talk' to him as he moved along the gravel, to a pace that found me almost at a run.' 'No gun with me and just a camera,and a very nervous encounter as we advanced even closer to the camp. I could see my 'shotgun' draped over the boat's stern, loaded, but still five yards away. I thought of running just then but the bear suddenly moved towards the bank on his side of the river and into...the bush."
