Dr. Bob has been a featured guest artist for 6 years at the

New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival


Dr. Bob is a listed artist in the 1993 book 20th Century American Folk, Self Taught

and Outsider Art, written by Betty Carol Sellin.

Bob Shaffer (b. 1952) Born in Wichita, Kansas. He is half

Crow Indian and half French/German. He came to New Orleans in 1958

and now lives across "Lake Pontchartrain."

Shaffer fishes, hunts and crabs, in the process he has become very familiar with

alligators which appear in his work.

He used to carve only for family or friends. His woodcarvings feature birds and

creatures from the swamp and the woods. They have tremendous appeal...
