Luce Artist Biography

Arnold “Hook” Peterson lived and worked in central Michigan. He carved in the “Cadillac style” of candle-shaped fish inspired by wood-carver Oscar Peterson (who lived in Cadillac, Michigan). Arnold’s decoys were known among fishermen as “good fish catchers.” (Kimball, The Fish Decoy, vol. II, 1986)
