About the Artist
Nelson Grice was born in Nashville, Tennessee where he gained a love of entertainment and creative expression through the performing arts. He moved to Alabama as a teenager and expanded his interests to visual arts, particularly photography, eventually earning a BFA and M.Ed from the University of Montevallo. Teaching at the high school level since 1996 has opened Nelson’s vision of creativity to include sculpture. He is convinced the eyes of his students have enabled him to see more clearly the imaginary world.
Recently recognized in the 8th Annual American Art Awards for his work The Piper is Calling, a 31 x 18 x 15 bronze, winning 3rd place in the category of Best Representational Sculptor, Nelson’s works tend to be whimsical animal sculptures. His works are included in corporate and museum installations.
