The realistic approach that Shawn McAvoy reflects in his sculptures is a testament to his respect for the natural world. His attention to every detail is precise, depicting his subjects in an exceptional fashion, capturing extreme realism from every angle. Since he was a young man, Shawn had the opportunity to observe the wildlife of the North Country while staying at the family cabin in Indian Lake, New York and hiking through the woods. Shawn sketched the animals he saw there, and as an adult he experimented with different media until he found his niche - sculpting in his own unique style. Shawn's work is exhibited in several galleries including Willoughby Fine Art Gallery and is the recipient of many awards for his artistic interpretation of wildlife.
