Joseph D. Shero
Bird Sculptor

A lifetime resident of Dallas
County, Joe began carving
in 1972.  What started as a
hobby in his leisure time has
now grown into a satisfying
outlet for his talents.

Shero's carvings cover a
wide variety of North
American waterfowl, 
raptors, gamebirds and 
songbirds.  Each piece is an
original pattern created by 
the artist.  Grace, symmetry
and life-like detail 
completes what appears to 
be a live bird.

Since spending some time
in Ft. Sill, Oklahoma in
1965, Joe and his wife
have shared a special 
interest in Native American
History.  This interest and
extensive research led to a
workshop with some 
members of the Cowboy
Artists of America and a
new series of Native 
American subjects.  
Available at present are
two Eastern  Woodland 
warriors and an 
Apache maiden.

All artwork is in Limited
Edition, and all are signed,
numbered and dated.  A
Certificate of Authenticity
comes with each sculpture.
