“I have been inspired by watching animals in their natural habitat, especially in the untouched wilderness which is still to be found in Africa.  There the unwary die, so that even when the animals are at rest they are ready to flee. It is the untamed strength and power, always ready to explode into movement, which excites me.”



ABOUT JAN SWEENEY

The daughter of an Irish vet, Jan Sweeney grew up in the open countryside of East Anglia, on the east cost of England.  Her early training was at Colchester Art School and she followed this with three years working in Verona, Italy, under sculptor Mike Noble. She first visited Africa in 1985 and the African scene and wildlife had a powerful influence on her work.

She now has her own workshop and foundry in Zimbabwe where she does her own casting. Jan divides her time between her lakeside cottage at Lake Chivero, Zimbabwe and her house in Somerset, England.  Her work, therefore, portrays the animals of the English countryside and the game of the African bush.  Horses are a particular love of this accomplished horsewoman who has competed successfully in both eventing and dressage.
