Missouri artists Glenn and Trish Senter are primarily self-taught. We both love nature and are always looking for ways to bring the outdoors in. Both of our fathers were avid fishermen and we credit those numerous fishing trips as being the start of our love for the outdoors. In our work you will almost always find an element of nature, whether the item is made from a natural material or decorated with an image from nature.
Glenn carves whimsical scenes and figures in cottonwood bark and does relief carvings in basswood, butternut, and other woods. He has also carved three dimensional pieces and using wood burning to add detail.
Trish combines gourds and wood burning to create decorative bowls, vases, boxes and baskets.
We give our thanks to the following artists who share their knowledge and techniques with others:
Pen and Ink artist, Joe Benjamin, joyfully showed us how to turn dots into pictures.
Wood carver and painter John Engler, showed Glenn how to hone his relief carving skills.
Wood burner Paula Bebout, showed Trish the basics of wood burning on basswood.
