Born in Leicester in 1973 David began his career as an apprentice model-maker in the pewter industry in the jewellery and giftware industry. Within two years he had become the head sculptor at Alchemy Carta but felt it was the right time to start up as a sculptor of his own work. Having lived in Africa, Asia and the USA, he has taken inspiration from his time spent in each continent. His subject focus in recent years has been wildlife, mainly in his chosen medium of bronze.
“Art has always been a part of my life, in fact I’ve been drawing, painting and sculpting for as long as I can remember. I’ve been sculpting professionally for more than 20 years, starting my career in the pewter, giftware and retail sectors before specialising in bronze. I consider myself very lucky to be doing what I do, I get a great sense of relaxation and happiness when I’m sculpting, nothing else exists in that moment. I’m thankful that my work has found homes all over the world, It’s very gratifying to know my collectors get the same pleasure from owning my work as I have from creating it.”
