David Tomlinson

David Tomlinson was born in Cape Town South Africa and educated at Rondebosch Boys High School. After obtaining a graphic art diploma he entered the graphic art industry in Cape Town. He then moved to Johannesburg to join the advertising world where he held various positions with major agencies and eventually formed his own company.

Initially David's interest in ceramic sculpture was a diversion from the pressures of advertising. It combined a love of wildlife, with the creative element of sculpture.

This hobby became an obsession, and with the resounding success of several one man exhibitions at the Everard Read Gallery in Johannesburg, David decided to leave the advertising industry and live with his family in the beautiful surroundings of the Natal midlands, settling on a farm near Nottingham Road. His sculpture had now become an all embracing career.

The medium of ceramics was limiting due to its fragility, and consequently frustrating. David then experimented with bronze, which became his medium of choice. Numerous solo and group exhibitions followed and his work and recognition went from strength to strength. The subject matter of his sculptures was varied, but wildlife became his main focus.

Today his sculptures are in private collections in the United Kingdom, America and Europe. He has exhibited in several galleries in the United Kingdom and at
Christies London.
