Tim Cotterill (Frogman) was born in Leicester, England,
in 1950, and left school at the age of fifteen to complete
a 6 year engineering apprenticeship. This metal-directed education
provided a sound base for Tim's subsequent career in the arts.
Intrigued with metalworking, Tim moved into the sculpture
of radical wheeled vehicles, later finding his peak interest
in the design of animals and birds during the '70s and '80s.
Over 1000 original steel, bronze, and gold bird sculptures
have been sold world wide; many through Sotheby's auction
house in London.
Tim's curiosity of the diverse lifestyles in California
led to many trips to the U.S.A. Emigrating to California
in 1990, he exhibited and sold his art all across America.
These new high energy surroundings brought out the fun in
his art. Tim is now fully focused on Frogs. His bronze sculptures
capture the whimsical character, the jewel like quality,
and the pure joy of these beautiful little creatures.
