Cartuna- Steve Wirtz- artist-sculptor

First off, I'm a sucker for anything sculpture, from mini-HUGE, up-cycled to shiny new, I heart it all (mostly).

I first came across Steve Wirtz's animated, playful, and beautiful, dog sculptures at Companion Art gallery. I happen to have my photography there as well. A great place for gifts for yourself or loved one(s).

It wasn't until I was at Discovery World, The Artisan Market, this past December, that I personally met him.
Steve has a funny & corny sense of humor which shows in his work. A super swell guy as well. We chatted about being a self- employed artists, and I asked a million questions about his craft. He is just as patient as he is swell!

I went to visit him in his studio last week to check out his art in progress. Check out more of his work around town and online! Dog and cat art.

  1. Steve's work is the greatest! He can create anything doing anything. His golfing dogs are fantastic. Nice blog and great photography.
