New Jersey Native Michael R. Braun is one of the country‚Äôs fastest growing and most favorited waterfowl artists. His passion for decoy carving and painting started at the age of nine when he carved his first decoy - side by side with his father, Ed. Growing up, Michael's passion for the outdoors grew and began to hunt and fish. Being outdoors heavily influenced his artistic talents.  In high school, and beyond, he competed and placed high in the New Jersey Duck Stamp Competition, while still helping his father carve and design gorgeous and life-like duck decoys.  This lead him to go on and earn a scholarship to the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. During this time Michael studied Illustration and Design, starting his artistic career as a Commercial Illustrator and Designer. Now a freelance artist, Michael spends his days carving and painting what he is most passionate about - " Waterfowl."  He has also been commissioned as a graphic artist, painter and sketch artist.

 Michael works on a commission basis only and is taking orders daily. For more information on purchasing any of Michael's work you may contact him at:
