(207) 526-4203 e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org November 27, 2009 Introduction Mr. Hoyle’s career spans the breadth of museum exhibit work from research to exhibit fabrications. He studied his craft for ten years under the tutelage of Fredric Scherer, a 38 year veteran of the American Museum of Natural History (Mr. Scherer worked as a muralist with famed diorama artists James Perry Wilson and Francis Lee Jacques and as an exhibits preparator under James Clark and George Peterson.). Mr. Hoyle designed and fabricated a major portion of exhibit elements for the Maine State Museum, headed the 100 person excavation of the first discovered bones of a woolly mammoth in Maine, and has created exhibit and artistic works for museums and corporations around the nation. He also worked as a team member on the first known relocation of large, historically important dioramas, and became the artistic consultant and chief restorer of the foregrounds of the aforementioned dioramas. In 2007-08 he created a cartoon series to explain global warming issues, which earned him an appointment as Artist in Residence for the Climate Change Institute.
