Bird at Sea
Tony Angell’s passion for nature began in childhood, through exploring and studying wildlife and his artistic talent is innate. He developed and strengthened his skills through drawing and sculpting from life, often through study of the wild creatures he has rehabilitated. Angell’s paintings, drawings, and sculptures capture the characteristics and gestures of his subjects, beautifully communicating moments he has witnessed in the wild. Telling the stories of the animals who inspire his work, Angell’s work continues to expand our appreciation of the uniqueness and personalities each living thing exudes.
About Bird at Sea, Angell states: "In a late winter I’ve watched a storm petrel when fifty miles off the Washington coast. I marveled as its diminutive form in one moment seeming to be swallowed by a wall of water only to reappear with feet dipping indifferently into the face of an oncoming swell."
