Richard Schepis

Oil Painting, Carving, Sculpture

Richard F. Schepis was born September 19, 1943 in Ocean Grove, New Jersey.  He has lived all of his life in Wall Township, New Jersey.  Though a professional artist for many years, about 25 years ago he decided to channel his talent to wood carving.   He first saw the wood carvings when he was in Pennsylvania and stopped at a decoy shop.  He went home and carved a duck.  That was the beginning of his wildlife career.

Mr. Schepis has received many ribbons and awards as a result of exhibiting in various art and wood carving shows.  He has ben very successful with both his oil paintings and wood carvings.  They can be found in collections throughout the United States.  He is a member of the Ward Foundation, The New Jersey Hudson River chapter of Ducks Unlimited and the Wetlands Institute in Stone Harbor, New Jersey.  He does several one man shows at libraries, Art and Wildlife Galleries each year, and is a proud artist at the Main Avenue Galleria where he displays both his oil paintings and carved birds.

Mr. Schepis’s fondest memory is when he was honored by State Senator (and now Congressman) Frank Pallone with Senate Resolution by the State of New Jersey.
