Offering one-of-a-kind, hand carved duck decoys in a variety of species and profiles. Each decoy is uniquely carved and meticulously finished the old fashioned way, by hand. The birds are carved from Canadian White Pine and finished with semi-transparent stains which allow the natural grain and warmth of the wood to show through. They are then sealed and sprayed with a water based finish. Eyes are inserted and each piece is signed and dated.
When you order one of my carvings, it will be a one-of-a-kind work of art. I take great pride in each carving, knowing it will be cherished for many years to come. If you are a prior customer of ours and would like to leave us a testimonial, we would like to hear from you. We are proud to say that our decoys enhance collections in Canada, the USA, and in many other countries around the World.

I was born in 1955 and raised in Port Colborne, Ontario. After graduating from high school and spending six years in the work force, I was persuaded by my older brother to pursue my artistic talents. In 1980, I moved to Toronto where I started carving full-time. After three years, I moved back to the Port Colborne area where I presently have my wood carving business. Read more »
