Biographical Information
Frank DiVita ~ [b.1949] Italian/American
Italian-born sculptor Frank DiVita credits his beginnings to his early exposure to Renaissance art and an intense love of nature. His family migrated to Canada, then Montana when he was still a child. At an early age, he showed a talent for both zoology and art, which led him to illustrate textbooks for medical students while attending the University of Montana. After graduation, he declined career offers that would take him away from the wildlife and mountains of Montana. He took a job as an art teacher at Flathead High School, where he worked for seven years. Popular with his students, DiVita enjoyed his teaching but found himself yearning for more time to sculpt, particularly birds; for more biographical information and examples of his work see artist's website at www.frankdivitabronzes.com
