Vernon DePauw is a self-taught craftsman who has been wood carving for over forty years. He grew up on a farm in Illinois where his father taught him the pride of working with his hands and his grandfather, who crafted wooden shoes in his native Belgium, passed on his talent for working with wood. Vernon’s first carving was a stylized swan he made in seventh-grade shop class. Since then, he has made carvings for gifts and for sale, and always for the love of his craft.
