Eddie is a sculptor, a biology graduate and a former award-winning nature reserve warden. First and foremost, however, he is an active wildlife conservationist. For many years Eddie has lived in the small hamlet of Riber, near Matlock. An outdoor countryman through and through, he is never happier than when in remote, wild places studying and sketching wildlife.
Each sculpture starts as a sketch, completed from life in the field. He combines his artistic talent with his extensive experience of wildlife to capture the essence of his subjects in life-size sculptural form. When completed, the original sculptures are cast using the ancient lost-wax method which dates back to 5500 years ago. The sculptures are then patinated with heat and selected chemicals to give them colour.
Visitors are welcome to visit his studio and gallery but are advised to telephone or email first.
