Andrew Sinclair MRSS

Andrew Sinclair MRSS is an award winning sculptor whose recent public commissions include the David Bowie Sculpture “The Earthly Messenger” (Aylesbury UK 2018) and The Duke of Wellington Regimental Memorial Sculpture. (to be unveiled Halifax May 2019) 

Andrew’s sculptures are unique in their highly skilled attention to detail and this aspect of his work makes them resonate with life, adding a quality of realism rarely seen in contemporary sculpture today. 

With over 25 years of sculpting experience, Andrew’s is a true authority on sculpture, design, anatomy and the human form. A passionate sculptor, Andrew will work with you to fully develop your inherent artistic capability. He is a very rare person in the sculpture world: his skills and talents extend across every aspect of the sculpture process, from the design, sculpture, moulding and casting, to engineering and installation.

His first book ‘The Art of Earth and Fire’ was published in 31st July 2017. 

This debut book has already received acclaim from leading artist and sculptor Wendy Froud, who said: “Andrew Sinclair’s book, The Art of Earth and Fire, is a revelation. His techniques for teaching the complexities of anatomy, proportion and muscle structure are the clearest and most precise I’ve ever had the pleasure of discovering. 

Andrew is the co-founder of The Sculpture School, in Devon, which attracts students from around the world to learn from this master sculptor.

Diane Coates

Diane’s fascination with dynamic form, anatomical detail and sensuous line is the foundation of her work. Already an established painter and pastel artist, her career in sculpture began following her BA (Fine Art) degree in 2004. Her highly collectible bronze sculptures of sensual female nudes are in private collections throughout Europe and the Middle East. 

Working with Andrew Sinclair MRSS in his professional sculpture studio this became the catalyst for her discovery of how sculpture should really be created. With a fervent belief that figurative art is wholly neglected in formal art education, Diane is passionate about teaching excellence in sculpture skills and craftmanship which led her and Andrew to establish The Sculpture School in 2010.
