Looking for a hobby after retiring as a nurse, I started woodcarving. It seemed a natural to focus on birds since I have been a bird watcher since I was a little girl. Growing up in Southeast Kansas was a perfect spot for watching all sorts of migrating birds and that’s what I did, learning as much about birds as I could, studying their anatomy, feather layout, behavior and habitat. Now that I live in Sequim the journey has expanded. Just like people, birds develop different regional characteristics. That’s what makes birdwatching exciting and I hope it shows in my carvings. In order to create a successful carving, the wood must become “the bird”. I want to capture its expression, the way it turns, its spirit. Then I call it finished.  Joyce

Wood sculptor Christian Speidel invites you to the Blue Whole Gallery for April 4ths First Friday Art Walk. His delightful and whimsical new exhibit is entitled “Night of the Nudibranchs”, a work inspired by these amazingly wonderful creatures of the sea. “Whether in close-up or viewed from a distance, nature continually provides the diversity of shapes and colors that inspire my art to an ever evolving vantage point”. Eight new creations in wood await to delight the child in all of us.
