Tony Angell
Over 40 years as a naturalist, artist, and author.  Tony Angell sketched and observed the bird life of the Northwest, eventually put together a portfolio of drawings and sketches, and was signed with the very first gallery he walked into, one of Seattle’s oldest and finest galleries, Foster-White.  After beginning his career in the 1960s as a painter, he began to focus on sculpture.  He has also ventured into the fields of writing and illustrating and, between 1972 and 1992, published a number of books, principally about the birds of the Northwest.  Books showcasing his work include Owls (1974), Ravens, Crows, Magpies, and Jays (1978), and Marine Birds and Mammals of Puget Sound (1982) – all published by University of Washington Press.  Author, illustrator and sculptor, Angell has won numerous writing and artistic awards for his work on behalf of nature, including the prestigious Master Artist Award of the Leigh Yawkey Art Museum.  His sculptural forms celebrating nature are to be found in public and private collections throughout the country.  Tony has worked actively as a board member of Washington’s chapter of The Nature Conservancy, is an elected Fellow of the National Sculpture Society, and retired in 2002 as Director of Environmental Education for the State of Washington after 30 years.
