Ken Rowe  Artworks >>

An early interest in taxidermy led to his work in wildlife sculpture, and he and his wife opened a commercial studio where he created life-sized animal mannequins. Taxidermists bought these and draped the skins over them. He did his first sculpture in the late 1980s, although he had been painting for many years, having been encouraged by his mother but not showing much skill in that medium. He only sculpts animals that are in their natural environment because their muscles and bodies are better formed, and he likes to convey their personalities. He works from his studio in Sedona, Arizona, and does mountain biking for exercise. Source: Wildlife Art, September 2004
