Hi!  Coop & Katrina here.  Coop’s a wood carver and Katrina does wood burnings on some of his symbols...and when bored, has been known to create new symbols for him to carve.  We live out on the edge of the East Texas Piney Woods with Briar (ball obsessed, chocolate lab mix who is the best dog EVER!), Steffie a long haired Dachshund that had a long journey from breeder, to performing Nun companion to us, and a wonderful long haired calico cat named Rifka. When we aren’t home, all of us are traveling across the country to Renaissance Faires, Celtic festivals, and art shows.

Mark Cooper of Signs of Spirit - The beautiful wood carver.  When he first saw this picture, he said, "Hey! Who is that old Rabbi?"
From Coop: Long ago I realized that carving is a form of meditation. I am burning these images into my consciousness 16 hours a day. As an act of self defense, I made a decision to limit my carving to symbols evoking light, love, peace, exhilaration, freedom, liberty, ecstasy, and the creator of the universe. I spend my life focusing on positive symbols and meeting people that are attracted to them. It just gets better all the time.
 Please view my work as a grateful expression of my love of life and creation. May it bring joy to your day.


And this is Katrina...

I was blessed in 2006 to lose my job, have a friend that brought me to the wonderful Maryland Renaissance Faire, where Coop's friend brought me into his world.  As our friendship, love and lives deepen together, he is encouraging me to develop as an artist.  So his wonderful pieces that have wood burning on them are my attempts at creations of light, love, peace, exhilaration, freedom, liberty, ecstasy, and the creator of the universe.  Namaste.  And no. I don't have a picture of me I like yet...

 

Blessed Be Wood Carving
