Founder of Carvings and Canvas, Perry is a Cabinet Maker and Stair Builder by trade but today simply carves as well as teaches wood carving. He lives with his wife Julie in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Perry began carving as a child, influenced by the watermen that carved decoys as a means of survival. His wood carvings range from Decorative Wildlife, Relief (pictures in wood) and Folk Carvings to Architectural Carvings. His architectural woodcarvings include Fireplace Mantles, Window and Door Casings, Doors , Door and Drawer Panels, Cabinetry, Furnishings, Corbels and Staircase Components. In many cases he can be found carving existing woodwork on site. Everything he carves is based on realism and the natural world.
The vast majority of Perry's work is based on commissions. If you are interested in learning more about the commission process for architectural carvings please read the The Commission Process!
