Jeremy Bradshaw is a fine art sculptor and internationally known author. He has been fascinated with wildlife and animals since childhood. Growing up in rural, central California he was early surrounded by the chickens, rabbits, and cows at his grandparents’ farm. Working, exploring, backpacking, and fly-fishing in the Sierra Nevada mountains, his natural curiosity and interest in animals and wildlife continued to increase.
Jeremy’s subsequent pursuit of falconry led him to live in many parts of the Western United States from the Oklahoma panhandle to the state of Washington, where he now resides. Over decades of observation, research and practice he has become widely recognized for his specialized expertise in falconry. His passion for hunting flocks of 10,000 starlings with a small falcon called a merlin, feeds his discerning curiosity and acute observation skills. Jeremy’s sculptures come to life because they reflect an artist’s life authentically committed to the natural world.
I am inspired to sculpt by my fascination with wildlife and a desire for proximity to wildness in my own life. Forming and shaping animal subjects in clay is how I express the admiration and wonder I feel while creating something that I hope will share them equally with others. When my sculptures are experienced, I want the combination of shapes, smooth surfaces, colors, and character in the animals pose, eyes, and expressions to help convey my story and experience of that life. My goal is to share my passion for nature, wildlife, and wildness in each bronze I create.

I have been fascinated with wildlife and animals since childhood. Growing up in rural, central California much of my childhood was spent chasing frogs, snakes, and any critters I could get close to and helping to tend chickens, rabbits, and cows at my grandparents’ farm. These early experiences led me to working, exploring, backpacking, and fly-fishing in the Sierra Nevada mountains as a young adult and fueled my natural curiosity and interest in animals and wildlife.
My drive to be engaged with wild animals led me to pursue the art of falconry. During my almost thirty years of honing my craft and skills as a falconer I’ve lived in many parts of the Western United States from the Oklahoma panhandle to the state of Washington, where I now reside. Over those decades of observation, research, and practice I became widely recognized for my specialized expertise in falconry. My passion for hunting and working with trained hawks and falcons continues to drive my discerning curiosity and acute observation skills used to inform my sculpting. This desire to be close to wilderness and wildlife has brought me much happiness, and that is what I most want to share in my artwork. I strive to accurately represent my animal subjects while still providing a slight joyful lift through their expressions and poses. I aspire to bring my sculptures to life, so they reflect an artist’s life authentically committed to the natural world.
