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 Tanya’s 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.
