Pennsylvania. Wayne developed an avid interst in observing nature
at a young age and those early experiences in the outdoors sparked
his passion for wildlife and his artwork reflects the beauty and
grace of creatures in the wild. Through his natural born talent,
Wayne has created beautiful sculptures of deer, elk, turkey, bear,
and other North American wildlife.
More recently, Wayne has created figurative and historical themed bronzes. He has been commissioned numerous times for larger than life size monuments for towns in Pennsylvania, Tennessee, New Jersey, Missouri, Oregon and others. Subjects include pieces depicting the colonial era, the American Civil War period, World War II, Vietnam War memorials, and more. Here are a few "gallery" size pieces for your review. Enjoy!
