Fenella Noble

My work celebrates the personalities and quirky attitudes of animals, domestic and wild, but the more I study them the more I am in awe of the beauty of their design.

I can only give quick impressions, rather like sketches in wire. The sculptures are all galvanised in Rotherham and live happily outside for years, lending animation to the garden even in the darkest winter days.
