About the Artist

At the age of fifteen, Larry Clifford became interested in fine woodworking and carving. Starting an animal training career in 1963 left little free time, so his hobby was put on hold for over 25 years.

His far ranging career has taken him to Sea World, the San Diego Zoo and other well know parks. While at Sea World, Larry trained a variety of marine mammals such as sea lions, elephant seals and walrus. His work included the opportunity to train and perform in shows with the original SHAMU the killer whale. Another famous animal Larry worked with was Flipper. After retiring from his television show, he could be found with Larry at the Miami Dolphins football games, where Flipper was the half time STAR! Larry's movie and TV credits include training the dolphins for Dr. Doolittle and Danny and the Mermaid. Larry has been seen on numerous television shows with animals he has trained. In 1990 he had his own television show featuring zoo animals.

In 1991, almost three decades after the start of his career, Larry formed his current company that provides exotic animal education programs for children of all ages. Exotic Parrot care and Training Workshops are also offered.

Larry met John Fairfield (master woodcarver, sculptor) while working at the San Diego Zoo. John became Larry's mentor in 1992 while working with him on a killer whale woodcarving. Later, with John's encouragement, Larry started sculpting this series of collectable Marine Mammal. Working closely with marine mammals has given Larry a unique ability to capture the grace, beauty and strength of these animals. This is reflected in the detail and the life like appearance of each sculpture.
