Artist Statement of Nicholas Collins

Part of the challenge of sculpting to me is getting the likeness in a portrait and not just capturing the character and spirit of the subject. It is a special moment when you see the customer recognise their animal you have been commissioned to make. When free from that challenge I like the idea that I can exploring any subjects that fascinate and interest me.
