The Joan Embery Collection

The Joan Embery Collection was created after artist Duane Pillsbury met his wife, Joan Embery, the Goodwill Ambassador for the Zoological Society of San Diego.  His early works were carved in wood and focused primarily on horses, cattle, and cowboys however he later expanded his focus to include bronze sculptures, and gold and silver jewelry of wildlife and domestic animals. His firsthand experience with training and showing an amazing array of animals from Aardvarks to Zebras, miniature horses to draft horses, cattle and dogs enhances his ability to capture the unique expression and personality of each creature. 

Not all of Duane's pieces are shown and he continues to create new pieces to add to his collection.  If you have a particular animal you are interested in and don't find it please contact us to see if it is available.

Joan Embery has served as a champion of environmental and conservation issues around the world, most notably as spokeswoman for the Zological Society of San Diego.  She currently serves as President and Chairman of the Board of The Embery Institute for Wildlife Conservation, a non-profit corporation, with the mission of connecting people to wildlife and conservation issues and educating the public with the role each individual plays in insuring healthy environments.  She has had the opportunity to express her passion for animals and the environment with a multitude of audiences in addition to making hundreds of television appearances on shows as diverse as The Tonight Show with both Jay Leno and Johnny Carson, CBS This Morning, Hollywood Squares, Mr. Rogers, Entertainment Tonight, and her own syndicated series Animal Express and Animals of Africa.

A percentage of all sales of items from The Joan Embery Collection will be donated to The Embery Institute for Wildlife Conservation specifically for the care and feeding of the wildlife ambassadors used by Joan to assist in educating the public about the necessity for conserving the environment and the wildlife that depend on it.
