For over twenty years Brian Cooley has specialized in large-scale sculptural projects that have become world reknowned for their dynamic composition, quality, attention to detail and public appeal. A graduate and former instructor at the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary, Alberta, Brian is best known for the impressive, life-sized sculptures of dinosaurs that can be seen in museums and traveling exhibitions around the world. He has created works for The Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology, The Nature Museum of Canada, Expo '86 in Vancouver, The Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, The Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia, The Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Conn., El Museo de Ciencias Naturales in Madrid, Spain, The Fukui Prefectural Museum in Japan and the Museum of Natural History in Taiwan. The Calgary International Airport is home to two of Brian's installations. One features suspended sculptures of some of history's most amazing flying animals, from the giant dragonfly, Meganeura, to the enormous, forty-foot pterosaur, Quetzalcoatlus. In the other, a crowd favorite, travelers are greeted by the sight of four raptors ripping up luggage on the Air Canada baggage carousel. His most ambitious project to date was completed in May, 2004 and features a seventy-five foot Alamosaurus and her two twenty-five foot babies smashing out of Children's Museum of Indianapolis.

Cooley has been commissioned to produce art for several issues of National Geographic Magazine including the covers of the May 1996, July 1998 and March 2003 issues.

He is co-author (with wife Mary Ann Wilson) of the critically acclaimed children's book "Make-A-Saurus" (Annick Press)
