Those acquainted with Geoffrey Auten know what a hidden talent Sullivan has in this quiet, unassuming artist who never saw a piece of wood he didn’t like.
Growing up he worked for many years with his father in a lumber yard where he probably developed his love of wood.
When Auten began duck hunting, he was fascinated by the wooden decoys. “Decoys,” he explained, “are a kind of folk art - each decoy is unique to the artist with no two ever being the same. You usually can’t buy them online.”
