About Brad

As a young man, Thoreau's philosophy of a simple life greatly influenced me. 

So, I work out of my home studio deep in the woodlands of northern Florida.


Since 1987, it is here in my home studio, that I carve, paint and mount my birds. I bring a keen sense of observation and an appreciation of detail to every piece that I create. I select and sculpt the driftwood to reflect the attitude of each bird.


As an artist, I love what I do. I'm blessed that my livelihood is to create these birds.


I hope to share my vision with you--that nature continues to delight, inspire and sustain me. Beauty is all around us. It is this passion, this purity of focus, this energy in pure form, that breathes life into my birds.
