Arab Mares and Foals, one of two designs commissioned for ‘Emirates’ and featured in their flight lounges, worldwide.
Although I am best known for my horse and animal sculpture, I don’t put limits on the subjects I accept. Over the years I have made many different sculptures and I enjoy the individual challenges each presents. I enjoy researching historical and otherwise unfamiliar subjects and I have had the pleasure of producing sculptures as diverse as silver presentation pieces for the Royal Navy to the original ‘Brit’ award.”
— Gill Parker, Equestrian & Wildlife Sculptor

I consider the relationship with my casting team is paramont to the quality and integrity of the sculpture I produce.

Gill is undoubtedly the most talented sculptors of her generation, that we have come across. She manages somehow not only to give her work a great sense of movement, but also make them wonderfully tactile.
Of the various pieces we have been fortunate enough to have collected as a family, from a life size Galapagos tortoise to more regular size pieces, I can truly say that each time I stop and really look at them again, I enjoy them even more.
