NWCA Carving by Dmitry D. Emelyanov

Dmitry D. Emelyanov was born December 6, 1967, in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg), Russia. Since 1992, he has been mastering the art of religious and other miniature woodcarving, sticking to traditional methods and avoiding the use of optical or mechanical tools. Not only does he work just with hand tools, the tools he uses are ones he makes for himself.

"I have no special art education," Dmitry says, "all is given to me from God! I also make miniature sculpture from mastodon tusk, ceramic and metal, but woodcarving is my favorite art."

Dmitry is currently employed at Yaroslav-The-Wise Novgorod State University where he makes awards, souvenirs, etc., for the university. His work can be viewed on the Internet at, and he can be contacted at this e-mail address.
