Paul Talbott (September 1, 1958 - present) is an artist whose career only lasts the winter and his work a few days. Nevertheless, many people get enjoyment seeing his snow sculptures while they drive by. Talbott has made sculptures of dragons, pink elephants, a walrus, lizards, lions, a pig on a ball, a giant bear, and a whale. How does he make pink elephants in snow? Food coloring spray painted on. He once shaped a bear holding a heart for his wife, Sharon, on Valentine’s Day.
The rest of the year, Talbott works as maintenance supervisor and transportation coordinator for a local school district.
