Hamish Mackie

Wildlife Sculptor

British wildlife sculptor Hamish Mackie has had the privilege of observing wildlife in many corners of the world at first hand. This close observation, often involving intense research trips and sculpting from life in the field, informs Hamish’s whole approach to his work, which resonates with his passion for the natural world.

His bronze sculptures capture instinctive moments of animal behaviour but are his own interpretation, not merely photographic representations. Hamish manages to convey the inner core, strength and grace of his subject. Largely self-taught, his style is unique – he frequently works in spontaneous, often unrepeatable, fluid gestures with a confidence born from many years of mastering his craft. This assertive handling of his materials, coupled with an acute understanding of anatomy, results in strong, dynamic, ‘living’ sculptures.

Born in 1973, Hamish Mackie grew up on a livestock farm in Cornwall, England. He attended Radley College and Falmouth School of Art, before going on to study design at Kingston University. He began sculpting full time in 1996. Hamish has works in public and private collections around the world. His sculptures are cast in bronze, silver or occasionally gold as limited editions, each signed, dated and numbered. Each sculpture takes on average four months to be sculpted, moulded and then cast into bronze using the lost wax method. It is a highly-skilled, labour-intensive process.
