Description

This greyhound sculpture is modelled on Malcolm, a retired racing greyhound owned by Printmaker Sue Corke. Sue is the Head of Print at The Art Academy.

Malcolm maintains the extraordinary leg muscles of a racer and has a wonderfully sweet temperament. I’ve often found that greyhound owners are some of the most loyal owners to the breed. I have a lot of admiration for organisations dedicated to finding ex-racers homes, like Forever Hounds Trust. And I hope that the sport will continue its improvements in the welfare of these wonderful animals.

When I model animals I try where possible to find examples from life. I also use many, many photos. This helps me sculpt their anatomical features, the way that hair or fur lies over their muscles or alters their shape, and their different poses and attitudes.

– Your greyhound sculpture raises money for dogs in need –

The Greyhound statue is part of my Charities Range, and 10% of the proceeds go to the Dog’s Trust. The charity cares for over 15,000 dogs each year through its network of 20 rehoming centres. It works to ensure that all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction.

If you would like to commission a greyhound sculpture, and want to ask a question about a sculpture of your own dog, I have some information about bespoke sculptures and pricing on my commissions page.
