Richard Bruce is a well established artist and sculptor of Brownsboro, Alabama. He has been wood carving and sculpting for about 25 years and also works in stone and bronze. He presently works by commission only. Richard is a radiological technologist for a local hospital but spends much of his time with a piece of wood in his hands or on the road to art shows all over the United States.

Richard Bruce, known as "The Story Teller" at many of the art shows he visits for the stories he has for each piece of sculpture he creates. Born in Arkansas, he grew up in the small town of Newark where he first began drawing as a hobby. In 1990, Richard first started sculpting after a friend noticed his skill in carving pumpkins for halloween and introduced him to a local woodcarver at an annual woodcarving competition. In 1997, Richard was chosen as the Artist of the year at the 16th annual Southern Wildlife Festival in Decatur, Alabama. In his wildlife pieces, Richard tries to capture what he calls the "magic moment".The magic moment is the surprise in the eyes of a startled deer or the fearless expression of a wolf. "You try to breathe a little bit of life into each piece." Richard works in bronze, wood, clay, and stone. He researches each piece carefully to guarantee small details are correct.
