Celebrating 30 years in business 1991-2021
John Hoesman, the Carving Fool
Welcome to my website! If you are searching for hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind gifts, a special piece of artwork for your home, or a colorful pin to wear with that new jacket, I may be able to help.
The galleries on the following web pages show samples of my woodcarvings, including caricatures of people, pins and refrigerator magnets, and ornaments and other hand-carved items. For those of you looking for something to hang on the wall, I also offer paintings and drawings, samples of which are shown in separate galleries on this site.
I try to make ordering as simple as possible for you and will do my best to meet your deadlines. Thanks for visiting my website. I hope you find your visit enjoyable.
This week at "The Works," July 18 - 24, 2021.
I will work on a "coach" carving, some custom (people) carvings, leaf/animal pins, various ornaments/pendants (such as the seal shown above), and chip carvings. I will also do some oil and acrylic painting and continue work on pen and ink drawings, and charcoal drawings. On Saturday morning, I will be at the Woodville Farmers' Market at Trailmarker Park in Woodville. This will be my first show in almost two years!
