Nicholas Collins has a background in Model Design and studied at Amersham & Wycombe Art College and then at Hertfordshire University. He spent the early part of his career designing and making attractions for Legoland Windsor and Legoland San Diego. He followed that by working in the film and television special effects industry. Now he mostly focuses on his sculpture work, moulding and casting his creations as well as providing a moulding and casting service to other artists and sculptors.

Part of the challenge of sculpting to me is getting the likeness in a portrait and not just capturing the character and spirit of the subject. It is a special moment when you see the customer recognise their animal you have been commissioned to make. When free from that challenge I like the idea that I can exploring any subjects that fascinate and interest me.

Sculptures by nicholas collins



Nicholas Collins main focus of interest and creativity is animals, military and mythology, but he is not bound by these subjects and likes to explore other subject matter.
His animal sculptures include many commissions for portraits including the late Queen Mothers racehorse Kings Rhapsody which was auctioned off for charity.
When it comes to sculpture for the garden Nick likes to delve more into the world of mythology and fantasy. He designs pieces that compliments a garden adding both a focal and talking point to the surroundings.
