About Me

Hello, my name is Scott. I am just a regular family guy with four kids who grew up way too fast and this is my hobby or maybe obsession, depending on who you talk to. I enjoy spending time gathering and preserving natures little treasures.

Lifetime Guarantee

All work is one of a kind but I will do my best to fix, repair or replace any problem that you may encounter with a piece. I guess this offer would expire when I do!! 

SHop SHELVES

Thank you, Thank you

    Special thank you to all the farmers and landowners in and around: Canton, Beresford, Lennox, Spink, Garretson, and Pipestone. Without your help none of this art could have taken place. You know who you are. Thanks again, CRAZY ART GUY!!!

     A very special shout out to my wife, Fay, for the extra patience she has shown and for the countless bug invested hikes into the middle of nowhere!! I would also like to thank Nick for all the "be right back" that last an hour. 

   Thanks also to my son John for all his help, the muscle behind the operation, and vision. He sure has the eye to create a few great pieces!!


Thanks to everyone else as well!!
