Michael Trcic

In Memoriam

Sculptor Michael Trcic passed away January 30, 2024. He was 63. Well known for being a key artist on the life-size "T. rex" for the original Jurassic Park film, Michael and his wife Christine left Los Angeles in 1991 and moved to Sedona, AZ to launch his fine art career. He loved the stories and characters of the Old West as well as the tragedies and triumphs of the Native Americans which infused his figurative works.

Michael’s sense of humor is also remembered by everyone he met as he became a popular artist-in-residence at Mountain Trails Gallery Sedona where he shared his passion for history and sculpture with all who watched his creations come to life.  In Michael’s own words, “When people view my work, I want them to be inspired and reminded that we are all endowed by our Creator with the capability of greatness.”  


Artist's Statement

"I sculpt because I have a need in my soul to create art; it’s in my blood. As a self-taught artist with no formal training, I have been involved in art for as long as I can remember. I began drawing at an early age and before I was ten years old, I was driven to create artwork in three dimensions using clay. My desire was to be an artist when I “grew up."

I still continue that journey and each day brings exciting new ideas to explore."  

Sadly, a life cut too short!

Sculpture from Michael Trcic's bronze editions below are still available to order.
