Aloha Ya'll! I am new to this site. I had some kerfuffles getting a password and all, but thanks to David Harmon and Benz and Hanford, got that all sorted. I am Louie the Fish. I got that name in Fiji back in the seventies. I have been carving since my art degree from UH in 1970. I am mostly a bone carver, but work in pearl shell, ivory, horn, wood and antler also. My website at http://www.louiethefish.com has many pics. I love to carve fish most of all, but have made a few tikis over the years. I am also a keen fly fisher and guide for bonefish here in Honolulu. Recently, thru friends in RI, I made a TV show on the fishing here, and that can be seen online at http://www.kettlebottom.com (Episode 7), and I do some bone carving on that show, and also on a Youtube clip. I lived and carved over 30 years in the south Pacific, and have a house and citizenship in New Zealand, where I was a trout guide and carver for many years. I look forward to hooking up with the great carvers I have seen on this site. I will herein attempt to add a pic of recent work to this post....I may fail....
Tightlines, Louie the Fish!
