Randy has been creating wood carvings for over 25 years, and will be returning to the Easton Waterfowl Festival again this year. Randy always enjoys coming back to Easton to see many old friends and to meet new ones. He really enjoys talking with people and answering their questions as they make their way through the gallery enjoying all of the work there.
The inspiration for Randy’s work comes from everywhere! Whether it be from meeting and talking with fellow artists at a great venue like the Easton Waterfowl Festival, observing birds at his home in Candor, NY, or even seeing a picture that piques his curiosity.
Randy creates the sculpture and focuses his attention bringing his subject to “life” through highly detailed woodcarving and realistic painting. Capturing the “spirit” and “attitude” of the bird may be one of the most challenging aspects of this art form.
Randy currently competes in several world-level competitions and has steadily progressed, winning many ribbons and awards along the way. Randy excels in carving all types of birds with individuality and beauty; capturing the essence of birds such as hawks, owls, songbirds, and even some game birds.
