Commissioned Art Pieces
If you would like to see a larger image just click on any of these thumbnails.

In striving to make my decoys as realistic as possible, it became ever more clear that many considered my pieces to be works of art. Increasingly I began to get requests for show mounted, speciality pieces - and now as many of my fish grace a table top or a showcase as actually come face to face with their intended fishy adversary!

My pieces are now found in private wildlife and folk art collections, museums and galleries throughout the World - they have even been sold at auction at Sotheby's.

I am most proud of being recognized by Michigan State University and Michigan Center for the Arts with the Michigan Heritage Award.

I let the wood dictate what lies within. The shape, grain and texture - worm tracks, knot holes and all - will reveal either a slender pike or an arching graceful Brook trout.

Although I don't do as many as I used to, you may still catch me at wildlife art shows from New York to Florida.
