Michael Simpson

Although Mick studied fine art at Staffordshire Polytechnic it was the traditions of his home town of Stoke-on-Trent which inspired his love for sculpture. The famous towns forming the region have created some of the worlds finest works and respect for the craft of the sculptor and designer is well deserved.


There are few modellers who can produce accurate and detailed studies covering such diverse subjects as dogs, cats, African wildlife and the female form. Mick is one of the few who can achieve this goal working from reference books, his own drawings, photographs and observation. Like so many artists and sculptors, his studio walls are covered in this reference.


Mick is unusual in another way in that he is one of the few sculptors preferring to model in clay. Mostly wax is used for its versatility but Mick loves the freedom clay offers and is quite content to work around its limitations.


David Geenty

David Geenty was born in England in 1945 but spent his youth in South Africa on his father's cattle ranch which was situated in the wilderness of what is now Zimbabwe.  He attended Art College in Johannesburg where he was introduced to the work of Moses Kotler a world renowned South African sculptor.  This much influenced his early work.

However in subsequent years he decided to study mechanical engineering eventually graduating from Glasgow in 1970.  He then worked as a naval architect until the ship building industry started to diminish.  His real first love of sculpture then re-surfaced and he concentrated his formidable talents on equine study.  His work is now amongst collectors who appreciate his quality and unique style.
