About the Artist:
K.G. McIntosh’s first wood sculpture, a barred owl, was completed in 1976. Although the majority of his works are animals, he has sculpted some humans. He says “that sculpture is the art form which people respond to most naturally. I make large sculpture with carving tool marks for texture. A natural oil finish protects and beautifies the wood.”
Today McIntosh lives and works in Cleveland, Georgia.
