Gary Eigenberger

Born with a love for nature and the outdoors with an intriguing interest in three-dimensional sculpture, Gary started sculpting trees and animals in clay at an early age. At age seven, he had his first exhibit displayed at his local public library. At age fourteen, he began sculpting and carving birds out of wood, his only tool then being a pocketknife.

“Every time I saw birds I took the opportunity to observe them and their surroundings.” Becoming aware of his deep love he had for wildfowl, he began seriously carving in 1987.

His vivid impressions of wildfowl coupled with a natural artistic sense of design and a talent for intricate detail and realism allowed him to create various sculptures that have been exhibited worldwide. He has received many Best of Show awards over the years throughout the U.S. Gary has won second Best in World titles three times and won second Best of Show in the newly created Masters Class at the Ward World Wildfowl Carving Championships.

Gary is featured in many national art and collecting magazines throughout the U.S. Gary’s creations can be found in various private collections, corporate, galleries and exhibits including the prestigious Leigh Yakey Woodson Art Museum Birds in Art exhibits in 1991, 1992, 1993 and 1995 and Christie’s of London, England Wildlife Art in 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2000 and the Easton Waterfowl Festival in 1999 and 2000.
