Biography   Eugene Wells

Eugene "Gene" Wells (c. 1850 - 1930s) Stony Brook, New York [1]

Gene Wells was a mason by trade who lived in Stony Brook on the North Shore of Long Island. When not plastering, Wells spent a good deal of his time in the local marshes studying the wildfowl. He is best remembered for his cork black duck decoys*, which are considered "natural looking, relaxed and contented".

Wells made wooden decoy heads for himself and other carvers which are well shaped and carefully painted. He is credited with a number of broadbills and canvasbacks made of local pine. A widower, Wells left Stony Brook when his daughter married and moved away. His legacy consists of finely carved decoys and stories of his legendary carving skill.
