Her love of all animals is supremely exemplified in all of her sculpture. Some catching that moment, whether the poise before the pounce of a big cat or the sudden turn of a swerving hare. She now spends much of her time in South Africa working on her beloved animals.

Her work, therefore, portrays the animals of the English countryside and the game of the African bush. Horses are a particular love of this accomplished horsewoman who has competed successfully in both eventing and dressage.

Sculptures by jan sweeney



The daughter of an Irish vet, Jan Sweeney grew up in the open countryside of East Anglia, on the East coast of England. Her early training was at Colchester Art School, and she followed this with 3 years working in Verona, Italy, under sculptor Mike Noble. She first visited Africa in 1985 and the African scene and wildlife had a powerful influence on her work.

She now divides her time between the peaceful rolling hills of Somerset, South West England and the wild bush of the Zambezi Valley in Zambabwe. Her work therefore, portrays the animals of the English countryside and the game of the African bush. Horses are a particulare love of this accomplised horsewoman who has competed successfully in both eventing and dressage.


At the ripe age of 45 I was invited to Zimbabwe, I left my cloths behind saying I will be back. Returning to UK, and my buissness, I was sensitive to the chemicals so could not continue!- so I went back to Zim to be a sculptor self taught.
