Juliet Collins has been for her whole life deeply passionate about animals, and so it is this passion that joins with her love for artistic expression in her bronze sculptures. Juliet is also known for her use of a coarse stoneware clay which gives her work a beautiful stone-like finish. Her mastery of these mediums is predominantly directed towards exquisitely rendering some of the most striking creatures of the animal kingdom.

Highly Realistic Animal Sculptures
Juliet's first collections often focused on animals such as horses and cats, and the style tended towards the cubist. This approach was to change when Juliet travelled to Africa in 1991. Firstly, this gave Juliet the spark of inspiration to begin to focus artistically on animals such as elephants. But this first change also initiated a second, as the shift in focus to African animals additionally presented the opportunity to evolve her style. In particular, she began to put a lot more emphasis on realistic textures, and this forensic attention to detail is something which can still be found in her sculptures today.
Talented Animal Sculptor
Originally from London, Juliet now is based in the Isle of Wight where she also has her studio workshop. This is where she creates her own artworks, as well as running many classes for aspiring sculptors. She carried out her studies at the Medway College of Design, before she then became the resident Artist at Woodside Community School. She did this for 3 years, then set up a workshop in Blackheath. In 2002, she made her move to the Isle of Wight.
