Tree of Life Artworks
Kim McClelland has always loved to draw, so the fine detailing required in carving was just right for him. Once he purchases fossils from the Native American Indians in Alaska, he works around cracks, fissures and chunks of bark as he slices, polishes and engraves them. Thus a fossilized mastodon or mammoth develops a story of its own...designed and carved by Kim, and reproduced by his wife, Katherine, in a polymer resin base. "Kim is known for his intense, detailed work...and his imagery is extensive," says Katherine. "We love being able to put artworks in the hands of those who could never afford a McClelland original. It makes his designs available to a much larger audience." With some 300 images to choose from, Tree of Life Artworks has found a place in many homes and hearts.
