(American, b. 1933)
Born and raised in San Diego, California, Marty began his love affair with all manner of funny stuffed animals and furry creatures at a young age. They were ultimately exchanged for a real puppy who gave his master unconditional love, and who made him laugh time and again as he went off to work.
Many years later, when Marty was 62 and retired from the rigors of corporate life, he rediscovered his passion for art and was persuaded by his wife to take sculpting classes at a local art center. In 1995, he eventually found himself eager to create a series of whimsical bronze “Harvey Dogs” inspired by his love of dogs.
Each dog is individually hand-crafted in bronze and hand-finished by a patina artist which results in each dog being a unique work of art with no two exactly alike.
Marty enjoys sharing his work with anyone who loves animals or who simply delights in beginning each day with a smile or a chuckle. His whimsical dog sculptures are highly collectible and are in private collections worldwide. Each dog is a limited edition. They also come with a Certificate of Authenticity, adding to their collectability.
With over 130 limited edition bronze dogs available, you are sure to find at least one that is just for you and will make you smile. And, although bronze dogs are his forte, Marty also has created many realistic looking breeds as commissions for clients. His charming sculptures are cherished by all who acquire them.
