About the Artist

Growing up around the woods and waters of rural Maine, David Smus has had a close affinity to wildlife since childhood. His lifelong love of art and the outdoors, combined with years of experience in taxidermy and a degree in Wildlife Management contribute to his knowledge of anatomy and life history often expressed in his work. Primarily self-taught, he began sculpting in wood, specializing in natural-finish birds and animals. He's since worked with several master sculptors and now does mostly limited editions in bronze. His work has captured numerous First Place and Best Of Show awards and is noted for evoking a sense that the spirit of the animal is residing in the medium. "I spend hours simply observing wildlife and feel like I owe such beautiful creatures the dignity of proper representation." Studio visits by appointment and commissions are accepted.
