From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gaylord Schanilec (born 15 April 1955) is a notable American wood engraver. Working out of his studio in Stockholm, Wisconsin Schanilec has used traditional wood engraving processes to create illustrations for hundreds of works.

He graduated with a BA in visual arts from the University of North Dakota in 1977. He worked in the Twin Cities until he relocated to just outside Stockholm, Wisconsin, where he built the studio in which he now works.

Recent works

In 2005, Schanilec created the multiple award winning Mayflies of the Driftless Region offering detailed closeup engravings of mayflies as well as lengthy descriptions. In 2006, Schanilec provided illustrations for "Old Swayback".

Currently in progress is a book that will focus on the intricacy of trees, entitled Sylva: Farm 590.
