About Eddie

 

Eddie is an artist; a biology graduate; an award-winning nature reserve warden and a former wildlife park director.  First and foremost, however, he is an active and passionate wildlife conservationist.  An outdoor countryman through and through, he is never happier than when in remote, wild places studying and watching wildlife. 

Although widely travelled, his favourite places are the outlying islands of Scotland.  He feels particularly privileged to have spent an entire month on the inaccessible and uninhabited islands of St Kilda where he was able to observe and sketch the massive seabird colonies.  It was this particular expedition which fuelled his desire to sculpt a range of seabirds and have them cast in bronze. 

Although Eddie had previously spent many years carving birds, he found that sculpting gave him greater flexibility and freedom than working entirely in wood.

Although he generally prefers to concentrate on British birds and mammals, he is currently sculpting a Spanish Lynx – a beautiful but highly endangered species.  Through his artwork Eddie hopes to promote interest in wildlife and foster support for its effective conservation.
