David Meredith was born in Leicester, England in 1973. David studied at the Leicester College of Art where he aspired to a job as in illustrator. However, a chance meeting with his future employer at the end-of-year exhibition led David to a career in the pewter industry.
David started as an apprentice model-maker, working in minute detail for the jewelry and giftware industry. Within two years he had become the head sculptor at Alchemy Carta, but he felt it was the right time to leave and follow a career as a full time sculptor of his own work. This he pursued through exhibiting his work in galleries and from private commissions.
During the early years he continued to work for the giftware industy in a freelance capacity and sculpted for many of the leading names of the time.
David has worked professionally as a sculptor for over 20 years. Having lived in Africa, Asia and the USA, he has taken inspiration from his time spent in each. However his subject focus in recent years has been wildlife, mainly in his chosen medium of bronze.
David’s work is exhibited in galleries throughout the United Kingdom and worldwide. David’s work is also in great demand through private commissions from clients around the globe.
