Bradford Naugler BRADFORD NAUGLER was born in 1948 in Campertown, in Nova Scotia. He began carving in 1989, after working in the woods as a labourer and also as a house painter. While his experience as a house painter gave him his introduction to the use of vibrant colours, it was his love of the surrounding woods and animals, which provided him with his initial inspiration.

He is well known for his carvings of roosters, peacocks, seagulls and bears,as well as mermaids. Some pieces are very small and some are life-size. His paintings often comment on major news items and are always enclosed in his trademark checkerboard frames.

Naugler was featured in the 1994 National Film Board production "Folk Art Found Me" and his work is in the collection of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.
Naugler is considered one of Canada's most prominent and successful folk artists', with his work exhibited and collected in both North America and Europe.
