Andrew Glasby's beautiful bronze sculptures combine his passion for art and wildlife. Andrew has been a professional sculptor for 11 years and has always had a deep love of wildlife, particularly birds. “Seeing a fleeting moment in nature that stirs your emotion is a wonderful feeling, and I try to recapture this feeling in my work.  I want everyone to share this experience whenever they see my sculptures.”

Alistair Makinson is one of the country's finest landscape and sporting painters and has specialised in the British countryside for the past 20 years. Self-taught, Alistair paints primarily in oils and his subjects include wild landscapes, shooting scenes, rivers, fishing and wildlife. “For me, a successful painting is one which evokes the feeling of being there. I aim to capture the atmosphere of the day”.
