Dan “Heffy” Heffron creates wood carvings that are almost lifelike. His attention to detail is second to none. He has taught himself over the past 40+ years and actually makes most of his tools himself. This allows him to produce the painstaking details that truly define his work. He does not use any paints, stains, or glass eyes with his work. The coloration he achieves is a real testament to his abilities.
Heffy also wants to share his knowledge, so he will be setting up a training program in the near future.

A NOTE FROM HEFFY:
I hope you like my work and I’m asking for your patience on communications. To be honest, I have multiple types of dyslexia and find it uncomfortable to look at computer or phone screens, making it very difficult to maneuver in the world of technology. My friends are helping me with this website and emails, so if I don’t get back to you as quickly as you like, I apologize. However, there is that old-fashion thing called a telephone, so leave me a message and I’ll always call you back.
