Derek Arnold is a 1993 Graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art. Since then, he has maintained and operated his studio in Harford County, Maryland, working primarily in metal.
He draws inspiration from natural forms found in animals and plants, as well as the mechanical nature of a machine. He works to combine these different sources and create a whimsical sculpture that will make someone smile.
His sculptural work has been featured in films, magazines, and in public and private collections.
