Crafting from the Heart


Today Colin travels the world, observing animals in their native environments and mastering the distinct characteristics of more than 60 breeds. Colin’s creations have homes with collectors in New Zealand, Spain, Canada, and every corner of America. “There is a tremendous pleasure that comes from ‘figuring out’ an animal, but traveling to research that animal is every bit as fun,” he says. “I’m really in my element in the rural, off-the-beaten-path areas where life is simpler but wonderfully rich. I research animals fully before traveling, but until I see them in person, I can’t fully appreciate the creative challenges.”
