Tobin Capp is considered a pure artist in the world of bronze art as he is involved in every phase of his pieces from the creating of the clay originals to the molding, casting, and marketing. He is mentored by sculptors Bob Burkhart, Jeff Wolffe, and Mary Michaels, all of which have been pivotal in Tobin’s quest to produce works that depict the natural movement of wildlife.
Tobin’s western art is also heavily influenced by his passion for nature and the wilderness. He spends an average of 100 days per year in the outdoors and says, “Woodsmanship is a tradition of my family and is the obligation of each generation to pass down to the next. I draw the majority of my inspiration from my time in the field.”
