About the Sculptor/Designer
Will Wilson was brought up on a farm in Western Victoria and studied at University in Queensland and at Agricultural College west of Sydney before pursuing his passion for wildlife. He spent time working in National Parks in Northern Australia followed by work on a private game reserve in Africa. Will now lives and works in Ocean Grove in Australia.
About the Inspiration
A lot of the inspiration for the sculptures comes from traveling and experiencing other cultures with the biggest influences being Africa, Europe and most of all Australia. Ideas and designs are born through exploring the unique beauty of wildlife in different countries. My aim is to try and capture and reflect that beauty in our quality works of art and encourage that love of nature in people’s gardens. The various birds on the Birdbath designs look as if they are interacting or having a bit of a laugh, much the same way friends and families do which is one of the cornerstones of any culture.
All the sculptures have a sense of fun and aim to make people smile whenever they see them. They are designed to add love, charm, character, strength, and style to a garden space. Everyone can relate to the sculptures from children right through to the elderly no matter where in the world they live. Willie Wildlife Sculptures can cross all cultures the same way music and dance can.
We hope you are inspired and become as passionate about Willie Wildlife Sculptures
as we are.
About the Business
Willie Wildlife Sculptures was established in May, 2001 with the first designs being of the local birds that visited the backyard. These early pieces were sold directly through local shows. The business continues with this personal touch and we still only deal directly with clients and not through any Galleries or shops so you can discuss designs directly with the artist. Willie Wildlife Sculptures is a world leader in both design and innovation and the business continues to evolve and strive for excellence.
