‘Setter’ Bronze Sculpture by Charles Ellithorpe, DVM

Charles Ellithorpe is an award-winning sculptor and wood-carver and a practicing small animal veterinarian in Brunswick, ME. After graduating from Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine in 1991, he lived in Washington and Montana before moving to mid-coast Maine where he enjoys a small “farm” with his family.

Charles describes himself as a self-taught artist, but gives credit to his formal training in animal anatomy and his years as a veterinary surgeon. His sculptures show his dedication to realism and detail, yet he says his goal is “not to recreate nature but to show the art in God’s Creations. I enjoy creating art in memory of all the wilderness experiences I have had, including being charged by an unhappy grizzly in Alaska and a nose-to-nose stare down with a rutting bull moose in British Columbia.” Charles has been sculpting and producing limited edition bronze sculptures since 1997 and was an award-winning wood carver prior to that.

Charles is an avid outdoorsman, spending as much time as possible in the many wild places of North America. He was an active volunteer veterinarian with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and has been involved with hundreds of hours of hands-on elk management and relocation projects. A life member of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, he has served as a committee member with the Kitsap Chapter in Washington, the Upper Yellowstone chapter in Livingston, Montana and the Maine chapter. Ellithorpe’s art donations have raised more than $10,000 for the RMEF to help the foundation’s habitat and wildlife conservation efforts. Charles’ sculptures are part of numerous private collections in the United States and Mexico.
