Portrait of Bob Mosher

Bob Mosher grew up in Hingham, Massachusetts, a community that has produced outstanding woodenware and decoy carvings since Colonial times. His day job is as CFO for a software company that specializes in virtual reality. He spends his nights carving traditional style working decoys.

While in high school, Mosher became fascinated with the duck decoys produced by the old timers in the area. This fascination with decoys became a passion as he grew older. He has carved with and learned from some of the best traditional carvers on the East Coast.

The decoys produced by the early Massachusetts carvers heavily influence Mosher's carvings. He works in northern white cedar using a variety of drawknives, hand knives and rasps and finishes the carvings with oil paints. He then rubs down the birds to produce a mellow antique patina.

Mosher has won numerous ribbons including Best of Shows in the Professional Division of the New England Woodcarving and Wildlife Art Expo. He is one of the few contemporary carvers whose work is good enough to be taken in the major antique decoy auctions. In 2003 Mosher was one of three contemporary carvers asked by the Duxbury Art Complex Museum to display their work at their exposition of traditional and contemporary New England decoys.
