Hank’s style is a blend of realism and slight abstraction. The wood grain plays a major role in the sculpture’s design. The wood is finely sanded and finished with Tung oil.

Action is always a part of the sculpture’s composition – soaring petrels over oceanic waves, feeding sandpipers on mudflats, or owls on a branch looking out for prey.

Having grown up on the Atlantic coast in the State of Maine, shorebirds and oceanic birds are the most consistently chosen subjects.

 Over the years, a number of themes evolved – sandpiper pairs, petrels in flight, partridge eating apples, turnstones and beach stones and owls.
