Gary combines his passion for birds and woodworking in every carving. This had its beginning in hikes and fishing trips with his Dad, where he learned to identify a wide variety of birds.
Creating a sculpture celebrating the essence of each bird - restful, alert or territorial - is very satisfying.
Carvings range from “smoothies” – where most of the detail you see is in the painting – to “detailed” – where all the feather quills and vanes are carved into the wood, to accentuate the textures of the bird.
“Every time I carve a bird, I experience joy; it’s exciting.”
I hope you share my pleasure and enjoyment.
