This biography from the Archives of AskART:
From Onley, Virginia, he is a wildlife sculptor who was born and raised on a wildlife-rich peninsula between Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. In 1999, he was the featured sculptor at the "Southwestern Wildlife Expo" in Charleston, South Carolina. A group of 15 bronze geese by him are in the Chicago Botanic Garden, and three pieces are at his alma mater, William and Mary College.

He grew up on the rural Virginia coast, hunting and fishing in remote areas, and learned early to sculpt from his father, William Turner, who put himself through dental school selling his sculpture. A special inspiration to David was his high school art teacher, Jack Johnson. He married in 1883 and went to work at an animal research facility, but soon returned to Virginia to work with his dad.

They work together as a team of sculptors and have a business called Turner Sculptures, in a rambling group of buildings where David's brother is a dentist at one end. They employ 25 people and have an on-site foundry, creating many pieces that are affordable in the $200. to $300. price range. They publish a newsletter that goes to about 8000 people and through that as well as their gallery, make their sales.

Two of their pieces are at the MacArthur Center in Norfolk, Virginia, commissioned by the developer A. Alfred Taubman who owns Sotheby's Auction House.
