Wood Carving Artist Palanca
Palanca noted that both of his parents were artists and with both of their genes in him, he is literally ?blowing up inside? with creativity. His mother was from Jamaica and wrote many pieces of music and songs for her local church. His father was from La Ceiba, Honduras where he wrote books. After growing up in La Ceiba Melvin set out for Roatan to look for his cousin Mora. Mora is better known to all of us in Sandy Bay as the local fisherman in his dug out canoe!
Once he made it to Roatan he began to work for several large homes at odd jobs, digging wells, and gardening. In his spare time he walked the beaches and collected driftwood and odd shape branches. He would ponder them for a few days and then begin to carve. He says that the sea brings the wood already in these forms and that he just sees it and works with it. His favorite wood is hard mahogany drift wood. The longer it is in the sea the better it is to carve with! He also uses many of the islands fruitwoods and hardwoods.

"You do make sculpture because you like wood.
That is absurd.
You make sculpture because the wood allows
you to express something that another material does not allow you to."
