Tim "Frogman" Cotterill
|Tim Cotterill was born in Leicester, England in 1950. At the age of fifteen, he left school to complete a six-year engineering apprenticeship. This metal-directed education provided the foundation for Tim's subsequent career in the arts.
Intrigued with metalworking, Tim initially sculpted radical wheeled vehicles. During the seventies and eighties, he became interested in the design of animals and birds- working in steel, bronze and gold.
Tim's curiosity of the diverse lifestyles of California led to many trips to the USA and finally to his immigrating to California in 1990. These high-energy surroundings gave new direction to his work, eventually leading to his exclusive focus on frogs as his now signature subject matter.
Produced in limited edition bronze and enhanced by the most brilliant patinas, Tim's frogs are both whimsical and elegant. In capturing the spirit and vitality of these beautiful creatures, he artfully accomplishes his stated goal of bringing more joy and happiness into our lives- and validates his rightful designation as "FROGMAN."
