Jason had spent 14 years studying wildlife as a taxidermist. He had achieved national and world recognition for his taxidermy work with multiple industry magazine covers and earning a world champion title in 2005.
Sculpting is something that Jason had done on a regular basis as a taxidermist. "I've had an interest and also an appreciation for bronze sculptures for many years." As a taxidermist Jason had concentrated almost exclusively on mammals during his 14 year career. He is now applying his knowledge of anatomy along with his style of composition and design to the bronze industry. "What I love about bronze sculpture is I have the freedom to create a piece exactly how I want. Capturing the essence of the individual species that I am sculpting is the most important thing to me."
Jason has also had the opportunity to sculpt adults and children for several commission pieces. "Sculpting the human figure is both challenging and rewarding, especially under the scrutiny of a commission from family members."
