ABOUT

Jody Pawley runs a creative art studio in Sydney, Australia where he specializes in sculptural bronze. He is director of Sydney Sculpture School and Artisan Bronze sculpture foundry.

Jody has undertaken numerous private and public commissions, including memorials and portrait commissions of political figures and diplomats.

“I have always had an inherent passion to create, which is best expressed three dimensionally.

My focus is to capture the movement, emotion, strength and energy of my subjects and I find myself drawn to dancers, theatre, wild animals and lovers for inspiration.”
