Made in Queens: The Wood Carver

Made in Queens

A custom woodcarver sculptor, Deborah Mills specializes in hand-carved wood ornament and artwork for architectural and decorative elements: original sculptures, carved mantels, doors, entryways, newel posts, furniture of all styles and periods, heraldry, liturgical furnishings, paneling, friezes, nautical decoration. She has been carving wood professionally since 1991. She studied wood sculpture with Lorrie Goulet at the Art Students League of New York and, while she lived in Norway, trained with master woodcarver Erik Fridstrom at the Viking Ships Museum of Oslo. Deborah works with architects, designers, restoration experts, woodworkers, museums and collectors to create one-of-a-kind original designs or historically accurate reproductions.
