Biography  
Cliff Hollestelle


Raised in Omaha, Nebraska, his interest in wildlife began when he spent time on an uncle's farm where they hunted upland birds and waterfowl. Also seeing the movie "Bambi" sent both an anti-hunting message and a sense of animal artwork. He earned a degree from the University of Omaha and had a dual career as wildlife sculptor and illustrator-administrator for 32 years at the Barkely Speech Language and Hearing Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. In 1996, he became a full time carver and has won numerous awards including "Best of Show" at the Ward Foundation World Championship in Ocean City, Maryland.
