Retired after 39 years as a United Methodist pastor, Roger Becker headed to his Sun Prairie, WI woodshop to refine his technique in making carved Santas. His wife Jackie soon joined him, painting the figures then learning to carve for herself. The pair produce charming works bestowed with irresistible personality.
Roger studied caricature carving at the Wisconsin School of the Arts and recently began to incorporate woodturning into his designs. Roger and Jackie are members of the Capital Area Carvers and the American Association of Woodturners.
