About the Artist
Tim Cherry grew up in the Canadian Rockies, where he developed a love of wildlife and the outdoors. At age 19, he worked with taxidermist Forest Hart, who specialized in sculpting mannequins. For years, Cherry was a guide in the far northern reaches of Canada. Inspired by these experiences, he developed his unique and dynamic approach to animal sculpture. In 1988, he worked with various sculptors in Loveland, Colorado, including Fritz White, learning the sculptural process that would become his life work. He has won a number of esteemed awards, including a Gold Medal from the National Sculpture Society, and the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum's James Earl Fraser Sculpture Award.
What artist inspires you? Why?
Steve Kestrel. Everything he sculpts is creative and pure genius. His ideas are fresh, and the medium in which he chooses to work demands the utmost respect.
How do you come up with an idea for a new piece of artwork?
By continuing to study nature everyday.
Where is the most inspirational place you've visited lately?
Other than out the front door to the lake across the street, my annual fishiing trip to the Gulf Coast of Florida is always and enlighting experience. All you have to do is look around and Mother Nature provides an amazing plethora of inspiration.
