About Simon Griffiths
I am a wildlife sculptor living and working in the North Pennines, County Durham.
As a child I spent as much time as possible in nature in the woods and fields near my home, exploring and drawing the British wildlife that lived within them, especially the animals and birds.
My sculpture comes from within me, and I have spent many years experimenting with different techniques and materials.
My work primarily stems from direct observation of the subject. The stylistic and constructional considerations are secondary to portraying the birds and animals as honestly as I can. This is not to say that I strive to make my work realistic in the literal sense, instead I seek to capture that sense of awareness that is present in all living things.
I am a proud member of the Society of Wildlife Artists. (SWLA)
Since being a small boy I have been a member of the RSPB wildlife and wetlands society and each year try to do my bit for charity by providing a sculpture to be auctioned for a different charity.

Simon has kindly offered this beautiful piece of sculpture to the lucky winner of our first ever prize draw, to be drawn in September, when this year's curlew chicks have had a chance to grow.
