Dennis Ruane began his career as a sculptor while a graduate student in Madison, Wisconsin, carving and selling wooden spoons in his spare time. In 1982, he abandoned his science career to lead the life of a craftsman, moving back east the following spring.
An interest in American folk art influenced his work for the first decade and it was of a traditional style and generally realistic. Over the next fifteen years, Dennis' work evolved through many subjects and styles to its present form. It is characterized by simple flowing lines with the beauty of the wood an integral part of each composition.
