Artist Statement: 
I believe art should be an integral part of life. I try to give my work a spiritual value, a magical energy that makes the viewer feel good.

Stephen Huneck is an internationally acclaimed and recognized Vermont painter and sculptor known for his playful hand-carved furniture, sculpture and wood prints, particularly of dogs. When he works, he says, he shows the finished pieces to his dogs, and "if they sniff the butt of a carving, it's a home run. My personal message is that we've all become so distanced from nature, and dogs are an important link with it; they can be our guides. Dogs have an incredible love which they can teach us." A favorite of Frog Hollow visitors and animal lovers everywhere, Stephen’s work is included in many prominent museums and prestigious collections around the world.
