Joe has envisioned creating a sculpture of a Big Buck jumping a fence for over two years. 2021 was the year of the sculpture coming to life!

About Joe & Terry Malesky

Joe Malesky started his lifelong dream of being an artist when he retired in 2013. Terry Malesky was his assistant for the first four years but became his artistic partner when she retired in 2018 and they formed New Adventure Sculptures LLC. Joe has been welding since he was 13 years old and has worked in industry most of his life. His favorite medium to work with is steel but he also works with concrete and rocks.

Joe and Terry enjoy creating sculptures that bring people joy when they see the sculpture.
