Kent Ullberg (b. 1945)  Wildlife >>

Born in Sweden, he became a resident of Corpus Christi, Texas from where he became one of the most recognized American wildlife sculptors in the late 20th century. He has done numerous public commissions.

In 1998, he won the top award at the Prix de West show in Oklahoma City for his bronze "Ocean’s Cradle." The work depicts a mother otter cradling her pup and resulted from a three-day trip in the Pacific Ocean sketching and photographing sea otters and their pups cavorting in the waters off California’s Monterey Peninsula.

His twelve-foot high bronze of whooping cranes, "Rites of Spring," is located near the entrance to the Margaret Woodson Fisher Sculpture Gallery at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin. Source: Askart.com
