CECIL MOSHER
(1927 - 2002)

 

Cecil was born and raised on little Tancook Island, one of the many islands of Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. He began carving at a very young age and without any formal training. He used only a jack knife for most of his carvings. Cecil did seasonal work, and devoted his winters to carving.

Cecil's main interest was carving, trading and collecting duck decoys. He traveled around the province of Nova Scotia visiting other decoy carvers, and collecting samples of their work. He built a significant collection of Nova Scotia decoys in which he took great pride.

Cecil eventually began to develop ideas for other types of carvings, and took inspiration from his surroundings. Many of his carvings are related to the sea. Cecil continued to carve until ill health forced him to stop. He passed away in May of 2002.
