I have been a wood sculptor for the past 30 years. I am the owner and operator of Krausman's Woodcarving Studio in Gwinn, Michigan where I have held week long woodcarving seminars for the past 18 years. I have always had a passion for nature and expressing that through clay sculpture, bronze, and wood sculpture. Through my pieces I try to convey my feelings of my experiences with nature which then invokes others to feel that special moment through my art. I have won numerous prestigious awards for my work over the years. A piece of my art always starts with research and study in the field using photography and pencil sketches. I then transfer my ideas through a clay model. Once I have worked out all of the details, I then create it with wood using chisels, knives, rasps, & various power tools. Then I either finish it in bronze, paint it, or because of the beauty of the wood, I leave it natural.
