Chris Booras

Chris Booras is a woodcarver living and working on Cape Cod.  He is an avid boater and fisherman which has a major influence on his artwork.  His main choice of subject matter are the elusive animals of the sea including Blue Fin Tuna, White Sharks, and Humpback Whales.  He uses a variety of wood for his carvings but is most noted for hardwood carvings that he sands and polishes, achieving a smooth and shiny surface.  Chris strives to create graceful works of art, combining the beauty of the natural wood and the awe inspiring subject of the sea.
