Wilkinson has enjoyed a lifelong love of animals which is now expressing itself in her sculpture. Working as a docent at the Houston Zoo, educating children about animals and conservation, provides her with inspiration and opportunities to observe animals. Animals often display the uninhibited playfulness of children and she tries to capture that in her work. She received her Bachelor of Science in Zoology from Oklahoma State University and served as a docent at the Houston Zoo for four years. She studied sculpture at The Glassell School of Art, Houston, the Fechin Institute and Scottsdale Artists School and naturally found that her love of sculpting combined with her love of animals became the focus of her work. Wilkinson has received numerous commissions to create likenesses of beloved animals and her work is widely collected by animal lovers across the country.

Workshop Materials List

1. Clay – Chavant Le Beau Touche. Get the regular clay, not HM (high melt).
2. Clay warming devices, a metal bucket with a clamp on heat lamp or 100 W bulb works great.
3. Tie wire.
4. Aluminum foil.
5. Scissors.
6. Favorite sculpture tools.
7. Plank of wood (pine) approximately 8″ x 8″ x 2″.
Bring as many planks as you wish…the wood is used as the base for your sculpture.
8. Plumber’s pipe, 1/2″ threaded: Bring several different lengths…up to 10″…not PVC pipe.
Plumber’s pipe T joint.
Plumber’s pipe couplers.
Plumber’s pipe flange.
9. Screws and screwdriver to secure the flange to wood…this may be done before you arrive. (Place flange in the center of plank)
10. Wire cutters
11. Needle nose pliers
12. Rubber mallet.
13. Spatula
14. Measuring devices such as rulers, measuring tape, dividers, and calipers.
15. Because we concentrate on BIRDS IN FLIGHT, live models in the classroom are more distracting than useful. I will demonstrate the technique of constructing a cantilevered bird armature that can be used for many different bird species and will show you how to assemble shapes to capture the “gist” of the specific bird.
16. Bird field guides such as Peterson, Stokes, Golden, or Sibley. Sibley’s Guide to Birds (not Sibley’s Guide to Bird Life and Behavior) is best if bringing only one field guide. This popular book can usually be purchased at any bookstore.
17. Bring your laptop to the class if possible.
18. Bring your sketchbook.
