“Nature is the ultimate teacher. Using wood metal and stone I strive to capture the essence of the lessons I’ve learned.”
Southern California native Casey Parlette spent his youth in the hills, in the water and among the local wildlife. Inspired by what he saw around him and driven by a desire to create, he began sculpting at a young age.
A lifetime of observation and practice allows Casey to utilize a variety of techniques and materials to render the animals and plants in his sculptures. His subjects are wildlife – with particular emphasis on marine animals – hammered, forged, carved and welded of wood, bronze, brass, steel, titanium, mother of pearl, abalone, stone, concrete and more.
After graduating from UCLA with a degree in Anthropology, Casey was recruited to work as a commercial diver. He eventually pursued a career in life-guarding, breaks from which have seen him operating underwater cameras in exotic seas on behalf of FOX Sports and adventuring into remote areas of the world. For eight months Casey lived in the Peruvian Amazon where he discovered a previously unknown species of fish, which has been officially classified as Rivulus Parlettei. Casey’s adventures and studies have both engendered and influenced his art, in which he strives to capture the essence of his subject’s spirit and motion.
In addition to stand-alone and mountable pieces, Casey may be commissioned for architecturally integrated artworks, as well as public and private installations.
Casey credits both his adventures and his studies with inspiring and influencing his art. Currently sculpting full-time, Casey lives in Laguna Beach with his wife, Gina, and their son, Brooks.
