Luce Artist Biography

John W. McLoughlin's grandfather was a carpenter, and John learned to carve decoys, boats, and kayaks while he was still in high school. He followed the traditions of the Delaware River craftsmen and created hollow, flat-bottomed birds with limited detail. During his life, McLoughlin carved more than fifteen hundred decoys for both hunting and decoration (Gene and Linda Kangas, Decoys: A North American Survey, 1983).
