Tim Cherry’s sculptures are inspired by aspects of art nouveau and a love of wildlife. His years of experience as a professional guide in the wilderness of northern Canada have inspired him to create artistic interpretations of wildlife.
Born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and raised in Nelson and Prince George, British Columbia, Cherry now lives in Branson, Missouri, with his wife, Linda, and daughter, Amber.
Cherry has exhibited his sculptures in nationally known shows, galleries, and exhibitions across the United States and in Canada, winning several prestigious awards.

His monumental installations/commissions include Rabbit Reach at the University of Virginia’s Children’s Hospital; House Sitter in the McNutt Sculpture Garden at the Briscoe Western Art Museum; Horned Frog at the Daniel-Meyer Coliseum at Texas Christian University; Whole Hog, Bear Ball, and Discovery Garden, a group of seventeen sculptures, at Arkansas Children’s Hospital; and Wise Guy in the Vogel Schwartz Sculpture Garden, in Little Rock, Arkansas. In 2013 he had two major monument placements, Bison Medallions in the Jackson Hole Airport, Jackson, Wyoming, and Stag Leap at the Stephen Witt Jr. Conservation and Wildlife Center in Little Rock, Arkansas. He also was selected for the museum exhibition Wild West: Beauty of the Beast at the Rockwell Museum of Western Art, Corning, New York.
