Steve is a self-taught sculptor with some 25 years experience.

He was born in Leicester in 1970 and grew up in South Leicestershire, where he studied Art and Design at Lutterworth Grammar School. 

Steve began his career as an apprentice jeweller in the late 1980s and after serving his apprenticeship he spent several years working primarily with pewter, creating intricate miniature designs, at the same time starting to explore different materials and techniques. 

The focus of Steve’s work then turned to sculptures inspired by the natural world and he spent 17 years as an in-house sculptor with Country Artists before branching out as a freelance sculptor and model-maker. 

More recently, drawing from his childhood spent in the countryside, Steve has been inspired to create his stunning wildlife sculptures in bronze.

This bronze is hot cast  in high grade solid bronze in a professional British foundry using the lost-wax method to produce exceptional quality. Each bronze is hand finished using traditional methods of patination. 

Lost-wax casting (also known as ‘Investment Casting’ or ‘Precision Casting’) dates back to the Chalcolithic period (4500-3500 BCE). The process allows for the casting of intricate and exquisite pieces.
