Wayne Hyde has been drawing, painting, sculpting and creating from early childhood. He grew up an outdoorsman in Pennsylvania's Allegheny Mountains and has explored the deserts, mountains and forests of the United States and Canada. Not surprisingly, wildlife became the first subject of his artistic expressions.

Welcome to the Gallery
Wayne’s imagination is now taking him in a new whimsical direction. Tree frogs have become a subject of fascination and interest. They are terrific acrobats, playful and vividly coloured with jewel-like eyes that are enchanting for people of all ages.
Wayne’s frog sculptures have captured these same qualities. They are available in a variety of brilliant colours that include blue, green, purple and orange. Each is signed by the artist and individually numbered.
