About Vanobrien

I'll give it to you straight, one way or another. Sometimes folks get a boot to the derriere; sometimes they get the gentle touch. As for me I'm adding wood carving, sculpting and design to my repertoire of being an amateur shutterbug and wordsmith. Should there be anything you might want to discuss with me, send me a message. I'm more than likely to reply.
