Meet Herb Brofsky, Wildlife Wood Carver



Herb Brofsky, a Navy veteran and retired dentist, was always an art lover and collector.  After he retired from his dental practice, he and his wife, Ruth, moved to Cape Cod, MA.  Searching for a new activity to keep his mind sharp, he learned about wood carving at the Senior Center of Barnstable, MA.  Herb found teachers who could help him create carvings.

Herb utilizes two different types of wood: bass and tupelo.  While he began his carving venture by creating sea captains, he would continually observe the activity at the bird feeders by his kitchen window.  This growing fascination of the birds’ movements led him to a new focus.

Throughout his newfound bird carving career, he has studied under a variety of carvers.  He credits June Noll, a nationally award-winning master wildlife carver, with helping him attain the minute details you will find in each bird carving.

After the carving is finished, Herb carefully chooses the appropriate acrylic paint colors and washes to complete his valuable birds.  Herb also carves horse, deer, fish, and ducks.  His work can be seen at Artisans on The Ave Gallery in Lake Worth, FL and  Vermont Artisan Designs in Brattleboro, VT.   Herb is available to create commission and promises that no two carvings are ever alike!
