Mike Jackson, retired electrical contractor, artist and woodcarver, is a North Carolina native residing in Wadesboro, NC with his wife, Brenda.
For many years, Mike has enjoyed oil painting but in recent years, he tried his hand at woodcarving. Mike began by carving walking sticks and wooden toothpick holders. As his interest in woodcarving as an art grew so did the quality of his work. Among the fine hand-carved, one-of-a-kind pieces he produces are ducks, figures of cowboys, civil war soldiers, golfers, Santas and Santa's helpers and much more.
Mike has won numerous ribbons and awards for his woodcarvings and caricatures. His most recent achievement was being recognized as one of only three woodcarvers by the Caricature Carvers of America at the 2005 Charlotte Showcase of Wood Carvers by Woodcraft.com. Mike was also runner-up at the national level for one of his Santa figurines at the WoodCraft store in Charlotte, NC.
