Growing up in a small town in Colorado, Eric Slocombe had the majestic Rocky Mountains in his own backyard. Here, he spent his childhood experiencing firsthand the natural beauty of the wilderness – hunting, fishing, and camping on the river with his Dad. Even today, he vividly remembers what it felt like as a boy to hear elk bugling in the distance. It is these experiences that Eric brings to his wildlife sculpture. Depicting animals in their natural surroundings, he captures their subtle movements and instinctive reactions.
Eric turned to sculpting while studying art in college and first exhibited his work in 1984. Today, his bronze work is in private collections throughout the Southwest. Past public exhibitions include the Southeastern Wildlife Expo, the Dallas Safari Club where he was named Outstanding New Artist, and the 2007 Nature Works Show in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
