Shelly Weiser sees himself as a late-bloomer when it comes to artistic endeavors.
The Naperville man has earned acclaim in the woodcarving world for his detailed work, but it was a reputation that didn’t start until well after he retired from his retail job.
In the last 15 years, Weiser, who turns 90 this month, has won enough blue ribbons and top honors to fill 12-by-18-inch long plastic container.
Daughter Brayon Miklasz, also of Naperville, said her father is far too modest.
