The three cards are trimmed to 6 x 9 envelops, each card has an $8 dollar value, and will be sent by the artist to each of the three winners.

Deborah’s carvings also appear on the book covers below and also grace the interior of each of the books. And for more fun and games is The Indigo Pheasant’s cover was recently entered in The Ranting Dragon’s 2012 Annual Cover Battle . Very exciting and well deserved.

About Deborah A. Mills: She has been carving wood professionally since 1991. She has also studied wood sculpture while living in Norway with master woodcarver Erik Fridstrøm at the Viking Ships Museum in Oslo. In 1991 Mr. Fridstrøm hired her to assist him in carving a full scale replica of the twelve-foot-tall Ål Portal, an 800 year old stave church doorway in the collection of the Historical Museum in Oslo. (See the amazing Liturgical Doorway page and to view work-in-progress photos of all stages of the project.) And for even more about artist Deborah Mills, link to her website.
