Our research did not find other examples of this artists work, so unfortunately, we are not able to share an artists bio. The only reference that we found mentioned was that the artist worked in the 1960's, but we have no way of proving it as fact at this time. But needless to say, this is truly an exceptional marine folk art carving. This is one of three whale carvings by this artist that we just purchased with the other examples by Mirando to follow.
