From early childhood, I would walk through the forest of my hometown Vinnitsa, Ukraine, picking up sticks and carving decors on them. I passionately loved carving, but as life is not all about passion, I quickly jumped into real life and carving became my hobby that I never had time for. It took years for me to realize the wood chip carving is my calling and I decided to master my skills. I flew to Kirov, Ukraine, and had a great opportunity to learn from one of the greatest masters in Geometrical Carving. Carving anything from simple Christmas toys to more complicated custom jewelry boxes and chess boards.
