William Baker  

William Baker worked in carpentry, construction and landscaping. He started carving as a hobby, with subjects that included dragons up to eight feet long, and stick men, made from found materials. He also carved horned ducks, mermaids and other subjects in the round. He was drowned in a tragic recreational vehicle accident in late 1997.
