Here are some things just listed by other crafters and sellers on Folksy.
I grew up on a small holding in Cumbria, in the far north of England, and looked after ducks, dogs, ferrets, banties, goats and cats!...from a love of animals and a constant desire to 'make things', I became an animal sculptor. For the past 30 years I've been lucky enough to earn my living 'creating' and I haven't lost the urge to make things yet!
After getting a Fine Art degree specialising in sculpture, I ran a small shop for a couple of years in the market town where I still live, before going on to sculpt the originals for the well know figurine manufacturing companies; Border Fine Arts, Country Artists and Beswick. After 15 years of that I decided to sculpt and produce my own work again, and that's when Kirsty Armstrong Sculpture came into being.
I now make limited edition realistic sculptures of animals (especially red squirrels, and to name-drop shamelessly, HRH Prince Charles has a piece of my work!). I also make a whole range of other pieces from wall plaques to brooches to treasure boxes which combine sculpture and design. I cast the metal sculptural elements in my shed myself and use different techniques to produce unique pieces. I have also started to make a range of dog related items...and there'll be more breeds added in the New year.
I now work from home with my husband, boys and Flat coated retriever; Indy, for company. I've taken over the garage and the shed, and I thoroughly enjoy being my own boss again, endlessly 'creating'....
