Since 1984, museum-quality reproductions of Melody Peña’s
sculptures have been perfectly cast in natural mineral stone and meticulously
hand-painted in our North Hollywood, California studios (now relocated to
At the heart of every piece created by master sculptor M.
Peña is the artist’s passion for living creatures. This passion, coupled with a lifelong study
of animal behavior and anatomy, and an astonishing gift for three-dimensional
art, results in sculpture so intriguing and lifelike it is without equal.
Growing up in California, Peña surrounded herself with
animals. Keeping more than two dozen
aquariums in her childhood bedroom, a pet toad in a wastebasket, and a chicken
in a bucket, her collection of pets soon became the subjects of her artwork.
In college, Peña studied biology and zoology in addition
to painting, drawing, and sculpture.
Today, the artist is never far from her animals--they are
the living well from which Peña draws inspiration and the models for the
incredibly accurate detail in her work.
