Paul Jenkins’ is one of Britains leading animal sculptors and is also world renowned. His inspiration comes from his love of nature and many of his pieces come from direct wildlife observations. This completely self taught artist never fails to surprise us with his experimental glazed pottery and fascinating new bronze works.
Paul first started his career in art the early 70's sculpting in wood and then found himself drawn to sculpting in clay and wax. Paul then sold the business to concentrate on more exclusive art work rather than the mass market pieces he had successfully produced in the past. He went on to work as a commercial designer for various companies around the world including the Metropolitan Museum in New York.
Paul has also sculpted several pieces for the National Trust which were then presented to people for their outstanding contributions within the trust. Paul's Inspirations come from his love of nature especially animals. Many of his pieces are inspired from direct observations of wild animals in their natural habitat.
