Pokey Park's early and endearing love of both nature and art are the foundation for her whimsical, magical creations. From her childhood in coastal Georgia to her current homes in Arizona and Colorado, the creatures and beauty of nature have inspired and moved her. Her kinship and communion with nature and its inhabitants results in uniquely stylized bronzes of animals of every size, shape and species. Each has human characteristics that bring them to life in an arresting, playful manner. "I create with the hope that my work will bring a smile to the viewer. My animal sculptures are expressive, almost invariably happy. Positive energy flows through me into my work and I feel this is why they connect so well with people."
Pokey's work has been publicly displayed across the United States and internationally. Her sculptures reside in many private collections, public gardens, and museums, and new pieces are always eagerly anticipated.
