Natalie Staniforth Biography
After qualifying in sculpture for film, television and theatre in 1996 I worked in those industries in the UK for 2 years before going to Australia to work for various model makers and animators there. After one year there I went on to New Zealand where I worked as art department sculptor for Alan Lee and John Howe on Lord of the Rings. In 2001 I returned to the UK to continue in Film, including the first 2 Harry Potter movies, before eventually deciding to concentrate on sculpture for Public and private art. At this point I established my own company Sirren Ltd in 2003 and now work full time doing this in both the UK and Spain.

Artist's Statement:
I trained as a film industry sculptor, so have achieved a high level of skill in accurate and realistic sculpting. I now make public art, portrait commissions, and sculpture for galleries and private clients. Although it is freer work I try to bring to it the same attention to detail. I hope you enjoy the work I currently have for sale here.
