Bob Espen is a wood sculpture artist based in Toledo, Wash.
Bob moved to Toledo a few years ago after spending 23 years in Alaska. When he wasn't working at an Anchorage power plant monitoring gas and steam turbines, he spent his free time in his shop turning wood he found in the wilderness. Prior to Alaska, he served for six years aboard the Navy vessel USS Carpenter.
Espen credits his style to a mixture of on-the-job training and being self-taught. If you get the chance to meet him, he is happy to tell you how he acquired each piece of wood and how the unique shape of each piece inspired its design.
