Artist George Northup: Living in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Northup has been a sculptor for over 25 years. His work can be found in corporate and private collections across the country and throughout the world. He has created a series of bronze and copper lamps that feature sculpted wild trout accented under a table light with a buffed copper shade. In addition, George has teamed with legendary painter Bob Kuhn to create an exquisite migrating elk sculpture.
George spends many weeks each year traveling and researching his wildlife and sporting subjects. He continually is pushing his creative mind in new directions with fellow artists, his family and his friends. He spent several days flying with top Naval combat aviators who treated him to a super-sonic jet ride.
