MV Obsession

My obsession with Martha's Vineyard.. phototography..genealogy and life in general and this and that…

Remembering Stephen Huneck …

1 Comment

I was very sad to learn of the death on January 7th, of Stephen Huneck. He was a talented wood carver, author, artist and furniture maker.

I became acquainted with his work when I visited the gallery he had in Edgartown.  Over the years we’ve collected some of his beautiful and whimsical pieces of work and some of his books.

Spaniel wood carving.

Dachshund wood carving (gotta love the sense of humor here).

Books.

Prints.

And then the pleasure of meeting him in 2004 at a book signing in NJ.  He not only signed the book but drew a picture of our dog Chappy inside the cover.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)

  1. Oh Joanie, what a talent! I am so glad you bought his book. That spaniel carving I think I love the most, no the black dogs on the ark, no the dauschund . . . I can’t decide. Wish I could have met him, even for a few seconds. Thank you for featuring him on here.
