John Ellison was born in 1931 Manchester, UK this was a place and time when becoming an artists was not the sensible thing to do, turning instead to engineering as a full time occupation, John raised a family and emigrated to South Africa in 1970. Here his love for the abundant African wildlife inspired him to resurrect his passion for art and he started to create bronze sculptures in the lost wax method.
John Ellison has been influenced by many artists with his main influences being Fredrick Remington from the USA and Dylan Lewis, South African, mixing these styles with his own unique interpretation.
