In 1977, under the guidance of his uncle William Good, Aleck began carving yellow cedar plaques, which would become a life-long love and profession.
Unlike some artists who produce plaques in bulk numbers, Aleck creates unique pieces that are carefully designed, shaped, and finished with meticulous care. He has a following of collectors who appreciate the intricate details in his work, such as individually carved fish scales and bird feathers. His designs are often whimsical and always full of personality. Some of his more popular designs include Great Blue Heron, School of Salmon, and Pod of Killer Whales.
