Bobby Jacobs is a contemporary sculptor with a passion for creating large-scale work in metal, stone, found wood and hand-forged bronze. He was recently selected to sculpt a large-scale pair of Angel Wings to be installed in the Las Vegas Memorial Healing Garden, to commemorate the lives lost in the 10/1/17 tragedy.
Bobby is best known for his Angel Wing and Burl sculptures, which reside in both private and public collections, including Dell Children’s Hospital, in Austin, TX. During a 10-year hiatus from making art, Bobby was a top television executive, serial entrepreneur and COO and co-owner of Chicken Soup for the Soul, one of the World’s most popular non-fiction book series in history.
Bobby brings a lifetime of self-taught mechanical engineering and farm industry equipment skills to his work. In his spare time, he re-builds Range Rovers and services his seven tractors and five vehicles. He is also the primary caretaker of a 400-acre farm in upstate New York that he shares with his wife, Elizabeth.
Bobby’s passion for life and nature is expressed in everything he does from sculpting to building horse barns to growing acres of fresh vegetables and flowers to being a gourmet, farm-to-table chef.
