This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A folk carver with bird specialty, Lewis DeTurk was a resident of Kutztown, Berks County, Pennsylvania.  He is considered one of the significant Pennsylvania folk carvers.   His style was both realistic and fanciful in scale and composition.  A motive for his work was entertaining his wife, who was sickly.  "For two years he sat beside the sick bed of his wife Elizabeth, designing and executing numerous animal figures and groupings. DeTurk's figures are inspired by nature with deep cuts and carved detail precluding the need for any paint decoration."

The Kutztown Historical Society, Kutztown, Pennsylvania, has work by De Turk.
