Gwen Dutcher

Gwen Dutcher was born in Medillin, Colombia and grew up in Madison, Wisconsin. She began sculpting at the age of about 13.

In 1996 she began her career as a full-time commercial sculptor for the Walt Disney Company in Burbank.

"As much as I love Pre-Raphaelite and Neo-Classical art, I must admit an extreme fondness for many of the classic Disney characters," states Gwen. "Creating sculptures for the Walt Disney Classics Collection really allows me, as an artist, to delve deep into my passion for creating imagery with a sense of emotion and movement -- the Disney characters certainly allow me to explore a full range of emotions and, of course plenty of action and exaggerated movement."

Gwen now lives with her husband and four boys in Oregon. "I still love to sculpt and look forward to having time to actually produce the ideas that are knocking around in my head."
