About the Artist

Born in 1930 in Decatur, Illinois, Wakefield moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1954 and to Phoenix, Arizona in 1964. He became known for his humorous wood carvings of primarily cowboys and American Indians.

At one time his wood carvings were shown at Kennedy Art Galleries in New York and at Overland Trail Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona.  Wakefield was a member of the Arizona Woodcarvers Association and the National Woodcarvers Association.  His carvings won Best of Show in a competition staged by the Arizona Woodcarvers as well as a top carver award in Southern California.

A publication titled "Top Hand" illustrated the latest of 30 different bronzes by Wakefield, most cast from his original wood carvings.
