Dan Strawser has been carving in the traditional ways of his Pennsylvania German ancestors for over 50 years. The bold style of 18th and 19th century artisans comes through in his works and is a tribute to his heritage. Birds, fish, and other animals are customarily featured in folk art, and Dan’s work is no different. Broad-winged eagles and delicate song birds in twig trees, creatures both wild and domestic. His work is whimsical in its simple and familiar forms.

A self taught artist, Dan began working with wood in 1969 while still living in his original home state of Pennsylvania. Using only a pocket knife, he carves his creations out of pine or basswood. The forms are then painted by his wife Donna Strawser adding another element of personality to the pieces. Dan’s attention to detail and sourcing high quality wood make for creations that are timeless and ready to be enjoyed for generations. The folk art tradition truly lives on in his work.
