Craig Bergsgaard

I believe I was meant to be an artist – though it took me a while to get the hint.

From the time I left active military service in 1977, I worked in residential construction. After building houses all day, I would devote hours every night to woodworking. My house became stuffed full of custom furniture before I realized that I had been ignoring a stronger creative urge.

A friend of mine who is an art teacher suggested in the mid-1990’s that I give sculpting a try. I was surprised at how comfortable I felt with the art form. I have never really looked back: with each passing sculpture, my appreciation of the medium and living forms has grown.

In 2004, with the encouragement of my supportive wife JoAnn, I made the move from part-time to full-time artist. You can probably imagine how risky it felt to leave my day job to focus on creating fine art, but I’m so glad that I did. Every day is a joy!

I am filled with appreciation for my clients who choose my work to reflect their love of art and history. Thank you for your interest in my sculpture.
