Nick Mackman is an award winning sculptor of ceramic and bronze animal sculptures. She has been widely exhibited and in 2015 she won the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) Wildlife Artist of the Year competition. In 2012 she was Overall Runner-up and Go Wild category Winner. She won the Open category in 2010.
Her animal sculptures have found home with, amongst others, John Cleese, Dame Judi Dench, Chris Packham, David Shepherd and Vicountess Serena Linley. She has been commissioned by British Airways and the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. Her work is held in numerous private collections and is sold all over the world.
Nick's animal sculptures are much sought after for their wonderful characterisation and individuality, reflecting the natural diversity of her subjects. She spends many hours studying animals in the wild, carefully observing their form, movement and behaviour.
This meticulous approach, combined with a life-long love of animals, enables her to create wonderful, living sculptures of striking intensity and personality. Many of her subjects are highly endangered and she actively supports the work of animal and nature conservation charities at home and abroad.
