Animal sculptor Sherry Salari Sander lives on a 300-acre ranch and wildlife preserve in the Montana countryside that she affectionately calls “a bed and breakfast for animals.” She draws inspiration from the animals there as well as those she encounters during extensive travel to places as diverse as Alaska and the African plains.
Sander’s careful studies of wildlife behavior and movement have given her the ability to capture in bronze the animals’ distinctive characteristics and habits, creating sculptures noted for their expressive energy and loose, impressionistic gestures. Through her art, Sander strives to foster an appreciation for declining wildlife populations and the desire to preserve their habitat.
