Sara Barraclough lies in souther Utah with her daughter. She started carving about two years ago to carry on the legacies of her great grandpa and great great grandpa, two Scandinavian master carvers.

Highly recommended. Each of Sara's characters is rendered with humor, joy, and an attentiveness to the details that beginning carvers need to succeed. Following along with this book feels like carving with a friend. Kaylee Schofield, Managing Editor, Woodcarving Illustrated Magazine
Sara's straightforward, simple approach helps guide the reader through the projects on a fantastic journey to create fun, caricature-style carvings. Her passion jumps from the pages, giving inspiration to carvers of any skill level. Dwayne Gosnell, Caricature Carvers of America, Author of Woodcarving a Halloween Chess Set
