About the Artist..

Contemporary folk artist, Ted Nichols, lives in Maryland, where he finds a way of life that enhances his art. His artwork is reminiscent of popular American art of the 18th and 19th centuries. Often pieces are whimsical or humorous, with animals and people placed in amusing poses and situations.

Ted started furniture making and carving in 1979. He became a full-time artisan in 1985 when his business became Noah's Ark. All of Ted's carvings are original designs inspired from nature, fairy tales, history and biblical scenes. Each piece is signed and dated. One-of-a-kind, special commission and limited edition pieces are available. His most popular items include Noah's Ark, chess sets, barnyard animals, cats, dogs, canes and Santas.

Ted's works are publicized in numerous magazines and books: Early Home Life, Country Living, Wood Shop News, Washington Post and Country Home. Various craft stores, art galleries and museums in the United States, Canada and England display Ted's carvings.

Ted attends numerous shows throughout the year and offers carving seminars for instruction and demonstration. Visit the schedule page to learn about scheduled events.
