I have studied, raised, lived with, and admired wild animals
for as long as I can remember. As a young boy I was fascinated
by stories about animals, especially the ones that were almost
too amazing to be true. When I was sculpting Elusive I wanted
to give him something of a human posture, a sort of sneaky look.
Like he wants you to chase him, knowing full well you possess
neither the speed nor the savvy to keep up.
I know wildlife will always be a major part of my work, occasionally
even ones that are almost too amazing to be true.
