Biography Leo Osborne
A scholarship from the Art Instruction School of Minneapolis, Minnesota led him to combine his abilities with wildlife interests, and became a noted sculptor of birds, usually carving them in burlwood.
He first exhibited paintings on Cape Cod, but a move to Maine where he made wooden signs led to bird carving. A final move to the San Juan Islands in Washington placed him in the "middle of a bird lover's paradise." Fashioning his subjects from the burl found on maple trees, he likes the density of that wood and the fact it has no grain. He is such a perfectionist that he completes only three or four birds per year. He has won several awards for interpretive sculpture from the Society of Animal Artists.
