Donald Foxley was the Founder and first Chairman of the Cumbria Sculpture Association, has a style strongly of his own, and his career in Aviation Engineering comes through in some of his pieces. Although a latecomer to the Art, he finds time to teach his individual approach, and is featured in many private and public collections.

I took up sculpture in 1992, and it became so important to me that in 1994 I left my career in civil aviation engineering in order to concentrate on it full time. I attended a range of courses and took every opportunity to increase my understanding of sculpture and my range of sculptural techniques. I started off in adult education classes, and progressed to the Open College of the Arts sculpture 1 and 2 courses and an advanced sculpture workshop at a further education college.
I learnt an enormous amount from a variety of tutors and decided that I wanted to pass on what I had learned and add my own understanding to it. I therefore took the City and Guilds 730 adult teaching course, and developed a Creative Sculpture course, which I am now teaching.
