Dick Cook

Native Virginian, Dick Cook, has had a close relationship with the world of nature since the age of five. That was when his mother discovered a bluegill under his pillow. After a formal journalism education (Texas A&M), Dick edited publications for the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, National Wildlife Federation, and Virginia Institute of Marine Science.

Dick produced his own line of gold and silver wildlife jewelry that included waterfowl, song birds and game birds, as well as hand-carved wood pins. Additionally, he offered a few labrador pieces in bronze. Dick and his lovely wife Carolyn make their home on the Rappahannock River in Topping, Virginia along with a kennel full of labs.
