Artist Spotlight: Todd Westika
Todd learned the art of fetish carving mostly on his own. A relative made a small bear for him to use as a “guide,” and then he “took it from there.” After high school Todd went to school at New Mexico Tech, with a major in Geological Engineering. His knowledge of rocks came from those geology classes. “I had no idea that I would end up becoming a full time artist, but the classes that I was taking really helped me get a better understanding of the stones that I work with now. I have been carving since January of 1990.”
