Willy Tuz is an amazing artist and business owner in Grand Junction. Look at the beautiful works of art he's created by carving an avocado, a pumpkin and more.

We've had the pleasure of working with Willy from Willy's Wild Carvings during Teacher of the Month and Mix 104.3's Local Love. We know that Willy makes some amazing things and we're pretty much convinced he can carve literally anything.

Willy has been posting lots of pictures of his amazing work on his Facebook and Instagram. He's been carving all kinds of things from strawberries to avocados, to pumpkins and more.

The pumpkin he carved says 'hang in there world.' Willy says creating art is great for the soul and mind. He says that creating these works of art gives him an opportunity to put a smile on someone's face especially in these hard times. Take a look at the amazing artwork Willy has created, which he hopes will cheer you up:
