Animal Sculpture

I love to get beneath the surface of an animal – understand what makes each one ‘tick’ as a unique being – and capture something of the energy of that individual in its natural state.

Sculpture with Soul

I specialise in contemporary realist animal sculpture, working primarily on private commissions, animal portraits, and limited edition collections for galleries and exhibitions.

All portfolio work is avaible to purchase. Contact me for further details


Animals have been a lifelong passion

I have explored other species professionally as a film maker, academic researcher (MSc, PhD), behaviour consultant (MSc), and artist across 30 years, During this time I've been privileged to work with a diverse range of species from great apes to otters, big cats to red foxes, and many domestic animals too. I love to get beneath the surface of an animal – understand what makes each one ‘tick’ as a unique being – and I strive to capture something of the energy of that individual in its natural state.

Conservation is a driving force behind every aspect of my work - past and present. Through capturing something of the 'essence of being' of an individual animal through clay, I hope to spark interest, curiosity, and a deeper appreciation of other species. Both the endangered, exotic species I have worked with in the past and the more understated species which share our British landscape

Regardless of whether it's a dog or a leopard, the individuality - the personality - of each subject is important to me.


Edition of 24 - POA

I find the deep Earthiness and organic, tactile quality of clay the perfect medium through which to explore movement and express energy. Once the clay work is complete, I cast in foundry bronze or cold-cast using metal powders or other materials such as stone dust.

I love to explore different materials and methods to enhance or evoke the natural qualities of each particular subject. I have created my own unique method of patination using natural earth pigments to create soft, organic tones which echo the softness of fur.

This is what drives me creatively.

And then theres their beauty

Greyhounds possess such power and agility yet a delicate sensitivity which makes them fascinating subjects


I have a passion for creating organic, authentic looking colours that bring each animal to life, and aim to echo the soft tonal qualities of fur. To achieve this, I developed my own patination technique to create the soft, natural tones I was after.. I hand colour each sculpture myself using natural materials, therefore each piece is unique

Eurasian LYNX

I apply base layers of colour to create warmth, depth and texture before working on the facial details


I allow each layer of colour to settle before applying the next


I created a soft, grey patina for this particular piece

Private commissions of special animals

I consider it an absolute privilege to capture the character and essence of beloved animal companions through sculpture. Inspired by my background in animal behaviour, I love meeting and getting to know what makes each one special - what makes them tick. If meeting in person isn’t possible I can also work from photos, videos, and through your stories about your animal.
