  • I hope that you enjoy this unique collection of bronzes as much as Tanya and I enjoyedputting them together. All eighteen have been individually sculpted by the artist, from thedemure tortoise and toad to the magnificent elephant and lions.

    As a keen art collector my eyes have always been drawn towards Tanyas work and shehas produced a skilled range, which is entirely natural and equally beautiful.

    We look forward to showing you the collection in person, as the works look sensationalwhen viewed together.

    Enjoy the show.

  • Since childhood I have been drawn to animals and representations of them in art, fromthe pre-historic to the contemporary. I am interested in what animals mean to man -how we characterise them and how they elicit emotions from passion to cruelty.

    Animal representation is often sentimental. I want to show the raw power of animals,along with their innocence. In my sculpture, I am interested in using techniques associated with drawing and painting - brushstrokes, lines and scratches - to convey asense of immediacy and vitality and life.

    Above all, I want to show the directness of an animal's emotional response to the world.
