“I have crossed Cotton Topped Tamarin from Colombia with a Golden Lion Monkey from Brazil. These are found in South America and are on the Endangered Species List. People are cutting down the monkey’s tree habitats to make cheap furniture and clear the land for crops. And yet the Tamarin’s are very popular and there is a ground swell of people who are trying to save the Tamarin’s tree environment.
I have spent decades creating sculptures of wildlife, always wanting to draw people in. I am hoping to open a dialogue between the audience and the future existence of certain species.”
