Tim Cotterill has become the biggest-selling bronze artist in the world with his whimsical bronze frogs. His passionate collectors span the globe.

History and Background

After leaving school at the age of 15, Tim completed a six-year engineer apprenticeship, which sparked his love for metalwork. During the 70s and 80s, Tim created metal sculptures of animals and birds, along with radical wheeled vehicles. 

In 1990, the Leicester-born artist moved to California, where he built his Venice Beach studio, 'Paradise', complete with a frog and koi pond. 

Now known as 'Frogman', Tim devotes himself to the creation of his unique frog sculptures. His work is known worldwide in galleries and private collections. 

Castle Galleries is an authorised dealer of Frogman's work. 

This collection is available online and at our Guildford, Harrogate, Norwich and York galleries. Click here to find gallery locations.

Ideas and Inspirations

Tim's work has always been inspired by nature and animals. He explains: "I try to capture some tension: a moment frozen in time, an energy. Any artist should encourage emotion – it should grasp you."

His enthusiastic personality and colourful sculptures have captivated a diverse range of collectors, many of whom remark on the frogs' incredibly lifelike facial expressions.
