Robert Kelly's Profile
Hello, Thank you for visiting my Etsy shop!
About me: I was born in 1955 and raised in Port Colborne, Ontario. After graduating from high school and spending six years in the work force, I was persuaded by my older brother to pursue my artistic talents. In 1980, I moved to Toronto where I started carving full-time. After three years, I moved back to the Port Colborne area where I presently have my woodcarving business.
Although I've been approached by many people to expand my wood carving business, I've always chosen to keep it a small 'mom & pop' operation with no regrets. This way, every decoy and bird in flight is individually carved... not an assembly line mass-produced product.
The birds are carved from Canadian White Pine and finished with semi-transparent stains which allow the natural grain...
