Michael Tatom has been a sculptor for more than twenty years. He was born in Los Alamos, NM where he was surrounded by a family of artists and designers.
In 1994 Michael started sculpting his series of bronze animals, each with their own magical shape and movement. Using simple and graceful lines he has become a successful sculptor. The quiet fawn resting in the wood. The lurking cougar stalking.
Michael Tatom quotes: "The main focus of my work is to translate into bronze the essence of the animal, to capture some movement or instinct and present it in a simple, stylized form.
