Hello, I'm available for commissions right now - I am a woodcarver.  I mostly make small carvings of birds and animals, including 'portrait style' carvings of pets, which are great as gifts.  They make great Christmas ornaments as they are nice and light.
Every one is unique, right down to the drawing I use to make the cutout to carve, and they are completely customizable.  

My price for small ornament-sized single-piece carvings like these is $22 plus shipping:
Toby carving by greencheek Pineapple Greencheek Conure Carving by greencheek Sleeping Cat Carving by greencheek Calico Cat Carving by greencheek English Bulldog Carving by greencheek Eclectus Parrot Carving by greencheek

Although carvings like these make up the vast majority of what I do, I also do custom work including larger carvings, carvings with bases or multiple subjects, ect.

I also have an etsy shop if you are interested in seeing more examples:…
Sun Conure and Penguins by greencheek

You have GREAT pictures!
I am trying to find the right coloring for a picture of a bird I want to do. I've been trying to find out what the coloring of a pineapple is on the underside of the wing. Do you know what the difference between a green cheek and a pineapple is? What specifically is the one in your pictures?
greencheek Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2013
My greencheek is a normal green.
Pineapples are a combo of the yellow-sided mutation (increased yellow) and cinnamon (less blue/black pigment), sometimes they are bred for more red as well. Sorry I cant help more.

Thank you so much for replying! I stopped making excuses to go to the pet store and just made up the colors. (not like my pictures are science yet anyhow) You're pictures were a great help! Thank you!

I love your gallery. I think faving all your photos would take too long and would give you too many annoying notifications, so I'm commenting instead. Your budgie's simply adorable :)
