Chris Crooks has taken a somewhat winding road to get to where is now—creating imaginative lawn sculptures inspired by the southwest landscape he calls home. After graduating from the Art Institute of Philadelphia, Chris worked in advertising, then ran a printing business with his wife, while painting during his free time.



It was when the couple moved to Tucson for a change of scenery that Chris collaborated with a metal art manufacturer and fell in love with the art form. Eventually, he began designing and making his first metal sculpture collection from his studio nestled in the foothills of the Santa Rita mountains, just outside Tucson.

“I always wanted to make a living doing something genuinely enjoyable,” he says. “To get up in the morning raring to go, and never having enough time to do everything you want to do.”

            I tucked this little guy into a corner of my garden shed. He peeps down through rambling vines. It's a subtle addition to my yard and not everyone notices him -- but those who do are surprised and delighted.

            Looks just like the picture. We were not disappointed!

            Service and delivery comments:

            I had this gift mailed to my office and expected that it would be delivered to my suite. I did not want it to arrive at my house and have my wife see the box and were it was coming from. The mail person left the box on top of the envelope boxes at the entrance to our building. Fortunately it was still there two days later when someone in my office was curious about the box setting there and looked at the address. You may want to consider an alternative method of delivery.
