Artists Biography

Gill Parker

British 21st Century
Gill Parker is one of the most acclaimed animal sculptors of our time.
An accomplished horsewoman, Gill's work clearly demonstrates her passion for horses. Yet her work
is remarkably versatile in both subject matter and size – from equestrian subjects, to British wildlife,
big game and family pets.
Gill lives and works in a beautiful part of rural Gloucestershire, along with a various assortment of
animals. Gill also breeds and shows American Quarter Horses with which she has won numerous
European and National championships.
It was whilst studying art at South Wilts Grammar School in Salisbury that Gill was first introduced to
sculpture. Choosing not to go into further education, she tried several career paths, before taking up
sculpture again.
In May 1983 Gill took her first bronzes to London where they were bought by Garrards and Asprey.
Early support and encouragement from the Sladmore Gallery led to her first one woman show in
November 1984.
Since then she has become a leader in the field of equine and wildlife sculpture. With many major
commissions to her name including the life-size bronze Motivator at Ascot Racecourse. Gill’s
sculpture is eagerly sought by art collectors around the world and is in many public, private and
Royal collections, including Sheik Mohamed, Jeremy Tree, Sheik Khalid Abdullah, Lord and Lady
Baden-Powell, Pierce Brosnan, Noel Edmunds, Frank Sinatra, Margaret Thatcher, Richard Dunwoody,
Pat Eddery, Anthony Andrews, Ian Stark, John Dunlop, Henrietta, Duchess of Bedford, Lord and Lady
Russell, Mr and Mrs Seb Coe, HM The Queen, Lord Harris, Lord Kirkham, Duke of Bedford, Dubai
Royal family and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
Collectors of Gill's work make a solid investment in art of timeless quality, tactile and visual beauty,
and fine craftsmanship.
