Mick Doellinger’s sculptures give audiences a glimpse of an animal's behavior; one not only gets a sense of the emotion in the animal, but also sees a balance between the technical anatomy and the loose texture for which Mick's work is known.
Mick has lived in the United States since 2003, but grew up in Australia where he gained many of the skills he uses today in sculpting. Doellinger melds a working knowledge of anatomy and sculpting with a deep understanding of animal behavior and psychology that he learned from years of guiding and wildlife management in the Australian outback. Mick's work reflects his fascination with nature and art by blending the two in a tradition that has inspired countless artists through the centuries.
For the past 30 years, Mick has honed his sculpting skills and developed a style that has not only become his voice, but a reflection of his artistic process. Mick is a part of the Autry Museum's, “Masters of the American West.”
