The childhood adventures in the woods and streams of the English countryside were very influential in Tim Cotterill's development as an artist. "This was the beginning of a life-long fascination with an animal whose nature and disposition would influence my own perspective on life and the joy to be found in it. I didn't know then that I would someday be known as The Frogman." Tim began his life as an artist creating original steel, bronze and gold animal sculptures as well as an innovative collection of wheeled vehicles. Tim moved to California in 1990 and built his Venice Beach studio, 'Paradise', complete with a frog and koi pond. Here, he devotes himself to the creation of his unique bronze frog sculptures. His work is known worldwide in galleries and private collections.
The bright patinas, unique artistic treatment and facial expressions of Frogman sculptures captivate and intrigue a diverse group of people. Tim Cotterill's colorful, expressive bronze sculptures and his enthusiastic personality create an immediate connection with his collectors. The community of Frogman collectors eagerly awaits the release of each new sculpture that Tim creates, united in their appreciation of his creativity and craftsmanship. New enthusiasts continue to emerge, as many are introduced to the charm of Frogman sculptures and to Frogman himself at gallery appearances worldwide.
