Ben Foster, a Pacific Northwest born sculptor, has become known worldwide for his fly fishing, wildlife, and sea life bronze sculptures. At an early age, Ben showed talent in art and took classes throughout his school years. This is where Ben began to develop his lifelike detailed style. Because of Ben's love for fishing and the outdoors, he is able to capture grace and movement in each sculpture hr creates.
Ben has received several commissions, including a "Gemsbok" oryx, which was presented to ten different heads of state in the middle east, a bighorn bust for a company logo in Cody, Wyoming, a five foot tall humpback whale breaching for a private collector, "Morning Strut" for the Lander chapter of the national Wild Turkey Federation, a Vietnam War Memorial for Chawila Wahington Cemetery, and he is currently working on two commissioned sculptures, which include a marlin and a sailfish. Ben's sculptures have been purchased by major fly fishing companies, outfitters, resorts, and private art collectors around the world, including Japan, Australia, Scotland, and more. In 1997, Ben's sculpture entitles "First Catch of the Day" won "Best of Show" at the Eighteenth Annual Audubon Wildlife Art Show.
