“Frogs are fun creatures! I have tried to capture their individual spirit; their fun and their joy,”  says world-renowned frogman sculptor Tim Cotterill.

Known simply as the “Frogman” to his many fans and admirers, his unique bronze frog sculptors are designed to exude the same joy and exuberance that is embodied by their creator.

Tim Cotterill's bronze frog sculptures capture the whimsical character, the jewel-like quality and the pure JOY of these beautiful little creatures. "Through the centuries and throughout the world, frogs have symbolized many things - Good Luck, Royalty, Fertility, Magic Potions, Energy, Charm. In today's fast world, life sometimes becomes complicated and stressful. As you can see, my art is not. It's Elegant, Stylish, Whimsical, Unique and pure FUN! As children we were excited to see our first frogs. They made us laugh when they jumped our way! We were curious about the strange way they felt; the odd way they moved and their simple contented look. I used to watch frogs at my pond in England, noting how each one had its own color markings, character and even personality."

Tim Cotterill, also known as Frogman, was born in Leicester, England, in 1950. He left school at the age of fifteen to complete a six year engineering apprenticeship. Intrigued with metalworking, Tim Cotterill created radical wheeled vehicles and metal sculptures of animals and birds during the '70s and '80s. His original steel, bronze and gold bird and animal sculptures are in art collections thoughout the world. Tim Cotterill emigrated to California in 1990 where Tim Cotterill has since devoted himself solely to the creation of his unique bronze sculptures. Tim Cotterill's work is now represented in fine art galleries world-wide.

For artist Tim Cotterill, the shiny little frogs found in the secluded woods of his childhood in the English countryside were the beginning of a life-long fascination that has led him to be known as the ‘Frogman’.
