Simon Griffiths is a self taught sculptor and has turned his love and passion for birds and wildlife into a full time career.
As a child Simon spent as much time as possible in the woods and fields near his home in County Durham, exploring and drawing the creatures that lived within them, especially the animals and birds.
Simons work primarily stems from direct observation of his subject. The stylistic and constructional considerations are secondary to portraying the subject as honestly as he can.
Goldcrest Arts is run by Simons father, John David and wife, Heather.
