John Hoesman, the Carving Fool

Ohio State Coach Francis Schmidt

Welcome to my website!


The galleries on the following pages show samples of woodcarvings, including caricatures of people, pins and refrigerator magnets, ornaments, and other items that I have made over the years.  I also offer paintings and drawings, samples of which are shown in separate galleries on this site.  


While I'm taking fewer orders these days, please feel free to contact me if you see something in these webpages that you would like, or if you have a special art project that you would like me to take on.  


I hope you find your visit to this website enjoyable.   

This week at "The Works," September 18 - October 1, 2022.

I will work on special order woodcarvings and "coach" carvings, including a carving of former Ohio State Coach Luke Fickell (above).  I will also work on paintings and chip carved crosses.
