Description

Doris Park has enjoyed drawing, painting, and sculpture since early childhood. Primarily self-taught, she became interested in metal casting while studying at the University of Minnesota.<br>Along with Steve Maxon, Doris is an owner of MAXCAST, based in Kalona, Iowa.
An appreciation of the natural world and an empathy for animals characterizes the art of Doris Park. Her charming, beautiful bronze and iron sculptures often portray unusual or unappeciated animals, such as snapping turtles or toads. But the wonderful detail and accuracy of her work creates a level of realism which is almost unbelievable, and the character of the individual animals, as well as their own special beauty, is readily discernable.
