FACETED RHINO 

A N I M A L :  White Rhino

M A T E R I A L :  Welded stainless steel

P R I C E :  $24,000

U N I Q U E / M U L T I P L E :  Unique

D E S C R I P T I O N :  A large, geometric or faceted white rhino. The rhino, a source of longevity, stability, and unconventionality, can be used as an accurate description of the Cameron Park Zoo. It will be created out of stainless steel to ensure low maintenance with an approximate height of 8 feet. The rhino is a deliberate choice because of its current endangered species status, and will hopefully bring awareness of the need to protect this amazing creature.

WISE ELEPHANT

A N I M A L :  Elephant

M A T E R I A L :  Cast Bronze

P R I C E :  $52,000

U N I Q U E / M U L T I P L E :  Unique

D E S C R I P T I O N :  I envision an oversized bronze sculpture of an elephant who is deep in thought. The elephant, sitting in a personified style on a typical park bench, will appear oversized in comparison to the bench, with an approximate height of 11 feet. This artwork will be unique because it will provide an optimal opportunity to see, first hand, the vast size and beauty of these amazing mammals in a light-hearted, inviting manner, and also display the power and wisdom that elephants often symbolize. The piece will be created out of bronze to ensure low maintenance and will be pedestrian friendly for potential photo opportunities and human interaction.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

I am an animal-loving artist who sincerely believes that it is my professional responsibility to incorporate art into everyday civilian life whenever possible. I graduated from the University of Arizona, earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts with an emphasis in 3D Art. Since graduating, I have refined and enhanced my sculpting skills and find great joy and satisfaction when it comes to this art genre. The passion that I have for sculpting animals greatly fuels my creativity. I am motivated by a love of traditional media and fabrication techniques, including woodcarving and the lost wax bronze casting technique.  The satisfaction of communication between the work and the audience is paired with the joy and rest I find through the lengthy process of making.

I have exhibited extensively in Arizona and completed public art commissions for the Town of Marana, AZ and Vail Empire High School in Tuscan, AZ. I am employed as a welder/chaser/metal processor at Metalphysics Sculpture Studio in Tucson, Arizona.
