Raven sculpture and model



Kate Davis has been actively involved in wildlife art since 1975 when her pen and ink drawings were first published in the Cincinnati Zoo News. She is an internationally recognized wildlife artist and a national award-winning taxidermist, and has been an illustrator for the National Parks system. The source and inspiration for Kate's depictions are birds in the wild and the resident eagles, hawks, owls, and falcons of Raptors of the Rockies, both past and present.

Late in 2004 Kate began welding metal bird sculptures under the tutelage of Bill Ohrmann. Sculpture frames are made with 1/4 inch rounds, then 16 gauge steel pieces are cut with a plasma cutter, shaped by pounding with a hammer, and attached with a wire-feed welder. The garage has been transformed into a welding studio and resident birds have been great models.
