As a boy growing up on Lake Minnetonka in Wayzata Minnnesota, Bruce spent his summers building wooden boats to travel from one shore to another. His appreciation of wood, its many varieties, colors, and textures compelled him to seek more artistic uses for it. Living in the "Land of 10,000 Lakes," he also observed various species of migrating birds with the change of seasons. Later, as an adult resident of Morro Bay California, he became inspired by the natural beauty of the area and captivated by the diversity of shore birds and marine life. Combining his inherent interests and influenced by two very talented wood carvers, Bruce launched his sculpting career in the early 1970's. Over the years he has sculpted exquisite images of flowing, graceful birds and majestic sea creatures of the world. Today he still lives by the water, albeit a small lake in Atascadero California where herons, egrets, pelicans, swans and mallards fly in year round and hummingbirds, bluejays, orioles, and finches visit the feeders regularly. Bruce continues to work in the medium he enjoys, exhibiting his collection throughout California and the western United States.
