Bio

 

TONY HOCHSTETLER is a  sculptor of animals, more particularly a sculptor of reptile,  amphibians, insects, birds, and marine life. He is a member of, and has  won various awards from, the Society of Animal Artists and the National  Sculpture Society.
 

I sculpt the animals and plants that  fascinated me as I was growing up, and that still intrigue me today.  Insects, reptiles, amphibians, and fish have always been the animals  that interest me the most. The diversity of these animals, the way they  move, and the compositions that they form are the driving forces behind  my desire to sculpt.
 

Most recently his work has been exhibited  at the Gilcrease Museum, the National Museum of Wildlife Art, and with  the National Sculpture Society. Recent public acquisitions include  Benson Park Sculpture Garden, the Gilcrease Museum, and the National  Museum of Wildlife Art.
 

Other public collections include the Denver Zoological Gardens and Wichita Art Museum.
