Animal Art by Rod Zullo

There is something for every art collector out there in the arena of animal paintings and wildlife sculpture. Why? Because in the animal painting artistic genre there is such a wide range of work being created. If, in an art collection, naturalism and a skilled approach to materials are important, then the sculptural animal artworks of Rod Zullo would hold appeal. Zullo sculpts with bronze, creating beautiful warm-toned finishes on all of his works that draw the eye to them. The artist is foremost a realist, bringing expressive power to the animal artworks, but allowing nothing to overshadow their natural forms and bearing. An artist who likes the appearance of his wildlife art looking somewhat “unearthed,” Zullo uses color and inventive patinas to achieve such effects.

Animal Sculptures by Pokey Park

In the Southwest Art Collecting Resource Guide: Wildlife Art and Animal Paintings for Your Art Collection, art collectors who appreciate whimsy and a sense of play will find great appeal in Pokey Park’s works. Her fantastical figures reflect her multicultural interest and amount to a wonderland of creative characters sourced from her extensive travels all over the world and her interest in the wildlife of those places. For art collections that also specialize in equine art, Oregon sculptor Dixie Jewett’s work are a boon. Fashioning miraculously lifelike steeds from cast-off bits of metal, Jewett’s works are out of this world and somewhat unbelievable—with all the bits that she is able to combine into an astounding whole.

Animal Paintings by Nicholas Coleman

Art collectors who like to focus on the Western region will be drawn to Nicholas Coleman’s work, also featured in the Southwest Art Collecting Resource Guide: Wildlife Art and Animal Paintings for Your Art Collection. Combining his interests as a wildlife artist with a particular Western bent, Coleman produces oil paintings that have strong narratives surrounding the people, animals, and places he features. Much enamored with the history of the Native American tribes in his region, the cowboy and tracker lifestyles, and the natural wonders of the landscape and the beauty of a sunset’s reflections on a still-as-glass stream, Coleman really offers up wildlife art and more that is skillfully executed and sensitive conceptualized.

Longhorn Cattle Paintings by Teresa Elliott

Texas-based artist Teresa Elliott has found her niche in the genre of wildlife art and animal painting with her portraits of longhorn cattle. Elliott makes each of her portraits unique and evocative using an incredible array of color, unusual and abstracted backgrounds, and interesting directional light. But whereas Elliott’s “models” are fairly stoic and majestic, Melissa J. Cooper’s sculptures of woodland creatures are decidedly friendly and approachable, from startled squirrels and chattering beavers to bears captured at water’s edge to herons standing poker straight.
