In the 1980’s Johnny started to carve with chips of stones left over from the stones his father and others of his group would leave behind. He kept on carving until he became proficient. He carved so he could have some pocket money of his own to buy cigarettes and soda drinks.

Although the green stone is a harder to work with, it is still his favorite type of stone. The whales, narwhal with tusks and birds he enjoys carving and he finds he’s getting better at making them truer to life.
