About Avalon Sculptures

Avalon Sculpture Studio
Allow us to introduce ourselves. We are Josh and Sara Porter, the owners of Avalon Studios. We would like to share with you a little bit about ourselves and who we are. Josh is originally from East Grand Forks, MN, and Sara is from Baxter, MN. We met at Northwestern College in Roseville, MN as art students.

When we met, we were both very interested in art and music and found common ground immediately.

The first years of our marriage were spent in St Paul. Josh was employed at Tivoli Too, a Sculpture and Design studio where he was involved with a number of projects and clients. One of the most exciting experiences worth noting was the Peanuts on Parade commemorative to Charles Shultz. The first year of the event, Josh was commissioned to design and paint four statues: Groovy Snoopy, Riverboat Captain, Joe the Grinder, and Explorer Snoopy. (We cannot post Snoopy photos on this site due to copyright issues.)

Those statues sparked a dream to continue work in this art field on our own. What started as a dream turned to reality in 2002, when we moved to Baxter, Sara’s home town. A new life began when “Avalon Studios” was born. We truly feel that we are living our dream!
