Tim Cotterill (Frogman)
“For centuries and throughout the world FROGS have symbolized many things - Energy, Good Luck, Royalty, Fertility, Magic Potions, Charm, Indiscretion. In today's fast world, life sometimes becomes complicated and stressful. As you can see, my art is not. It's Elegant, Stylish, Whimsical, Unique, and is pure FUN! It makes people smile! When we smile and laugh it releases endorphins all through our body and mind.
The more we smile, laugh, and feel happy, the healthier we become. As children we were excited to see our first frog. They made us laugh when they jumped our way! We were curious about the strange way they felt; the odd way they mobbed and their simple contented look. I used to watch frogs at my pond in England, noting how each one had it own color markings, character, and even personality. Frogs are fun creatures! I have tried to capture their individual spirit; their fun and their joy. Life is fun! I hope my art brings more happiness and joy into your life.”
Tim Cotterill was born in Leicester, England, in 1950, and left school at fifteen to complete a six year engineering apprenticeship. This metal-directed education provided a sound base for Tim's subsequent career in the arts. Intrigued with metalworking, Tim moved into the sculpture of radical wheeled vehicles, later finding his peak interest in the design of animals and birds during the 70's and 80's. Over 1000 original steel, bronze, and gold bird sculptures have been sold worldwide; many through Sotheby's auction house in London.
Tim's curiosity of the diverse lifestyles in California led to many trips to the USA. Emigrating to California in 1990, he exhibited and sold his art all across America. These new high energy surroundings brought out the fun in his art. Tim is now fully focused on Frogs. His bronze sculptures capture the whimsical character, the jewel like quality, and the pure JOY of these beautiful little creatures.
