Nick Bibby is acclaimed as one of the leading wildlife sculptors of his generation.
Born in County Durham in 1960, Nick has always been fascinated by the natural world. His talent was evident at an early age and he began sculpting commercially at sixteen. By nineteen he was a director of a leading miniature figurines company. More success followed as he went on to work as chief design consultant for a French art company, and then as a sculptor and modelmaker for television and stills advertising in London.
Nick, returning to his first love the natural world, began working in bronze in 1991. His first piece, a Kingfisher, was hugely popular and sold out in a matter of weeks. Nick has a deep appreciation and understanding of the anatomy and form of his subjects, and an astonishing ability to render natural textures, fluid movement and character in his pieces. His depictions of nature have seldom been equalled for their sensitivity and beauty.
Nick has a global following including, major collectors, international governments and famous artists.
His sculptures range from monumental to miniature, but all show an exquisite attention to detail.
Nick now lives and sculpts in Devon, a place he loves, and which provides constant inspiration.
