Godin - Wildfowl Sculpture & Carvings - A childhood fascination with the natural world inspired Pat
Godin to carve his first bird in 1967. He continued to carve in
those early years solely for his own pleasure. In the early '70's
Pat became aware of several competitive exhibitions of decorative
duck decoys and other wooden bird sculpture. After meeting other
enthusiastic bird carvers and picking up a lot of ideas and technical
tips his work quickly became competitive at the "World Class"
level of competition. Since his bird carving career began Pat
Godin has gained international recognition for his fine, accurate
renditions of wildfowl as well as for the creative vision present
in his pieces. More info...

- Wildlife Paintings - The beauty of the natural world
is the subject of W. Allan Hancock's artwork. Nature's fragile
state is his underlying theme. Whether it's a hawk on the short
grass prairie, waterfowl in a marsh, or an eagle on North America's
west coast, the daily struggle for survival of wildlife species
and habitats is portrayed in Hancock's paintings with lifelike
detail. Each painting captures a moment in time causing the viewer
to ponder its subject's future, both momentary and distant, often
questioning the role of mankind.
- James Atkin - High Relief Wood Carving - High relief woodcarving is a time-honored craft that creates three-dimensional images from the wood in intricate detail. The meticulous process combines the imagination of an artist and patient skill of a sculptor with the foresight of an engineer. Nature also contributes to these amazing works of art adding vibrant colour and the graceful movement of natural wood grains making each woodcarving a very special work of art.
