As a teenager David trained in animal anatomy and taxidermy, skills which have informed his painting and sculpture throughout his career.
His passion for travel and life drawing ‘en plain air’ have taken him to some of the remotest environments across the globe. He has undertaken field expeditions to Kenya, Madagascar, India, Jamaica, New Zealand,Lapland and the Balearic Islands to paint their wildlife and habitats.
He has illustrated books on endangered species in New Zealand and Madagascar.
Whether sculpting a pygmy shrew or a pair of life sized rutting red deer his passion for form and movement capture the spirit and individuality of every subject he shares with the viewer.
His limited edition sculptures are cast in foundry bronze and silver
.In 2018, David’s increased interest in the human form took him on a three month sabbatical to Barcelona Academy of Arts to work under Polish master Grzegorz Gwiazda.
This journey into the world of figurative depiction and the human condition has capturedhis imagination and his latest body of work centres around this exploration. David is happy to discuss commissions for internal and external sculptures.
His works are represented in public, private and royal collections worldwide.
