Erwin Flewelling finds inspiration just outside the windows of Nestlewood House, his home in Northport on the beautiful coast of Maine. There, he and his wife, Ellen, marvel at God's creation as they observe the abundant species of birds that visit their feeders. Erwin has carved several hundred birds of various species. His work has been entered in many competitions up and down the East Coast , including the Ward World Competition in Ocean City, Maryland. He has many ribbons and trophies that are evidence of his quality work and his birds grace the homes of many people across the United States and Canada. In addition to his birds, Erwin creates delicate feather pins and on occasion small birds to decorate your Christmas tree. He also does some flat artwork in oils and acrylics. He has written six instructional books on bird carving which are sold nationwide. You can see both the feather pins and books on this website

If the bird of your choice is not readily available, Erwin will gladly accept your commission and create for you a one-of-a-kind masterpiece in wood and paint.
