Sally Arnup (1930 – 2015), both nationally and internationally renowned for her animal sculpture. His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh sums up her immense talent in the light of commissioning her for his 80th birthday, to sculpt his Fell Pony ‘Storm’.
“It is no mean achievement to be able to convey the character, and characteristics, of individual animals in bronze. Sally Arnup has a wealth of experience in the sculpture of animals, and she also has the talent to capture their personality. Her speciality may not conform to the contemporary fashion for abstract art, but her style is nonetheless unique and timeless”.
