Dick Goerg

Richard was born in Port Angeles, Washington, USA. After ten years of teaching in a Washington institution for delinquent children, he arrived in Canada in 1976 to take the position of school counsellor in Peace River and obtained duel citizenship as a Canadian citizen in 1980. Now, a retired educator, Richard and his wife, Sharon, live in rural Alberta. They have remodelled a ‘prairie school house’ into a home and studio. This home/studio is located in the center of a major wildfowl migratory route which enables Richard to photograph and study birds represented in his work.

Richard’s formal education consists of a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education, majoring in biology, and an additional year of post graduate studies. His wood sculpting skills are “self taught,” with significant encouragement from his wife, family, galleries who represent him, and those who collect his work.

Richard was in public education for 30 years. He has been a high school biology and junior high science teacher, a school counsellor, and sixteen years as a school administrator. Richard has taught adult wood carving classes for the Camrose Art Society, Beaver County Adult Education program, and through Augustana University College in Camrose, Alberta.

After receiving several awards in international wildfowl carving competitions Richard has participated as a judge in those events. He donates pieces of his work to Ducks Unlimited, Canada, and other public service organizations. Richard’s work is in corporate incentive gift programs and can be viewed in private collections in Canada, the United States, Asia, Ireland, Great Britain, and several other European countries.

Richard carves in both the traditional style, where birds and trout are created as a realistic representation of the species, and in the interpretive style of carving wildfowl into raw wood. In traditional carving Tupelo wood is used to develop a lifelike species. In wood sculpting the bird is developed to compliment a unique natural wood form. He has published an article “Collecting and Carving from Unusual Wood Forms” in the Wildfowl Carving and Collecting magazine.
