About Joe Walker

As a young boy, I was afforded the opportunity to be exposed to the great outdoors, whether it was at the beach fishing, clamming, or crabbing, at a cabin in Central PA with my uncles and Dad, or just hunting locally where I grew up in York County, PA. In the 1980's, I slowly began taking an interest in bird carving, as I watched my Dad create some wonderful pieces.  As my passion for the outdoors deepened, I attended Penn State to earn a degree in Forest Technology.  I worked as a Forester in Maryland for 13 years.  Upon moving back to Pennsylvania, I needed to change careers. I went back to school and earned certificates in Drafting.  After not being able to work outdoors, I began creating carvings allowing me to enjoy nature's creatures indoors.  

My hope is that my sculptures bring a small piece of the outdoors to someone's office or home to be enjoyed.  Please check out the available carving page for immediate purchases or contact me to discuss a customized commisioned order.
