Animal Sculptor Sherry Salari Sander resides in the Montana Countryside surrounded by a 300 acre wildlife preserve, the setting for her home and studio. She draws much inspiration from animals seeking protection there as well as from extensive travel and field research ranging from the Alaskan bush to the African plains. Sander strives to foster an appreciation for declining wildlife populations and the desire to preserve their habitat.

Sherry Salari Sander states "My work represents a lifelong love affair with animals and art. Observing and interpreting animals in their natural environment reveals those subtle behaviors most worthy of telling. By incorporating habitat, I challenge my compositions to respectfully capture an animal's interplay with nature, its gestures and personalities, hopefully within an artful framework of balance, continuity and contrast".
Sander is a member of the Society of Animal Artists (Master Signature Artist), National Sculpture Society (Fellow) among others. Her work has been exhibited at the National Academy of Design, National Academy of Western Art, Prix de West, Gilcrease Museum, National Museum of Wildlife Art, Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, among others and her life size work is also included in the permanent collections of museums around the country.
