OUR CARVINGS

 

    Vic Berg graduated from Lake Forest College in Illinois with a double major in philosophy and biology.  This academic basis is the foundation, which has enabled him to develop a well-rounded artistic expression.  Having won numerous awards for his gunning stool duck and shorebird decoys in carving competitions on the East Coast has further established his reputation.  He is a featured artist in the books “Waterfowl Heritage” by Neal Connolly and “Sporting Collectibles” by James Karsnitz. He is noted for his unique keel-bottomed decoys.

    Trained in the art of woodworking by his father, the late Vern Berg, Vic has been carving since 1980.  As a hunting and fishing guide, he spends invaluable time afield yielding “hands on” experience in a coastal environment.  Vic taught Ellen to carve in 1986.  A former intensive care nurse, she has adapted her acquired skills to aid in the organization of a successful waterfowl and fishing guide service.  She specializes in carving a wide variety of shorebirds, songbirds, and miniatures. She has won awards for her hinged shorebird rigs and assorted shorebirds in competitions throughout the East Coast.
