Tanya Russell MRBS has become well known over the last 30 years for her life-like and vibrant animal sculpture, and her abstract figurative work. For Tanya her practice is not only about capturing the animals she sculpts with marks and movement. It’s about our relationships with those animals and their welfare. Consequently, 10% of Tanya’s sale proceeds are donated to animal rescue charities. Tanya founded The Art Academy in London Bridge, now a degree validated and thriving art college. Tanya's artwork is sold and commissioned internationally.
When I sculpt I ask myself how my artwork can better the lives of animals, and how I can use it to explore our understanding of nature and the animals we live alongside.
