Tim Shinabarger is an award-winning American sculptor and painter internationally known for his portrayals of wildlife. Today, his works in bronze can be found in major museums and private collections, including the Autry National Center’s Museum of the American West in Los Angeles and the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Wyoming.
A native of Montana, Shinabarger spent his youth and early adulthood never far away from his beloved wilderness areas in the northern Rocky Mountains. The past few decades have seen Shinabarger going further afield, exploring some of the most remote corners of the continent to gather reference material for new pieces. “Nature is the source of my inspiration,” he says. “There is no replacement for total immersion if what you’re seeking is the truth.”
