Ann Houston

I have drawn and painted Pet Portraits for many years after originally training as a Graphic Designer. Sculpture is another passion of mine. I sculpt a variety of subjects and find animals one of the most interesting. I study every aspect of the animal including their anatomy even for my more impressionistic pieces.

Much of my work is privately commissioned. Initially measurements and photographs taken, I then work directly with the model until the client gives permission for mouldmaking and final casting. Casts can be made in Bronze which involves a hot metal Foundry or in metal or stone powders mixed with resin which is suitable for outdoor display.

Dogs are one of my favourite subjects. I work from life whenever possible and study expression and body language to capture the special character of the dog.

Sculptures are numbered Limited Editions or unique single castings.

Price of lifesize head and neck portrait sculpture begin at £800.00 which includes cost of mould and single polymer casting. Foundry cast bronze price available on request.

I am sorry I cannot produce a sculpture using just photographs.
