Lloyd is a self-taught wood carver who has been “sharpening” his craft for 20 years. Ten years ago, Loyd began taking classes to expand his gift. He is a member of the Maine Wood Carvers Association, serving on the Board of Directors and as President at one time. He also belongs to the National Wood Carving Association of New England. His long association with many similar organizations helped him start the Capital Carvers Club of Windsor. He has given seminars for carving clubs at the YMCA and taught soap carving to youngsters at the Y. For the past two summers Loyd has taught woodcarving at a boy’s summer camp, ages 8 to 16.
