Biography  
Gary Shoop


Living near Riverton, Wyoming in an old log homestead house for a studio, Gary Shoop has been a sculptor in bronze since the 1970s. His favorite subject is horses, but he also does other animals and sometimes includes people.

Shoop began as a painter, but has been sculpting for 30 years when he met and worked for noted sculptor Harry Jackson. He worked with Jackson for nine years and this allowed him to make several working trips to Europe. There he was able to participate in the process of lost wax bronze casting and to study the art of the Old Masters. He works in many sizes from life-size to miniature.
