Kitty Cantrell is active/lives in California. Kitty Cantrell is known for animal and bird sculpture.
As a native of Southern California, Kitty Cantrell attributes her
respect for all things living to a childhood spent in the Mojave Desert.
It was in this arid environment that she became acutely aware of the
rhythms of nature and she constantly challenges herself to incorporate
this understanding into her artwork.
Kitty Cantrell as a representational sculptor is unmistakable. However, the ability to embody the artwork with the unique spirit of the animal is an elusive quality that strives for and devotes much effort to trying to understand the life force of the creature itself. Then her goal is to breathe life into a medium that is cool to the touch, to create the illusion of movement and behavior that is unique to the species.
