Tessa Pullan was apprenticed to John Skeaping RA for three years and continued her studies with the
City and Guilds of London Art School Diploma Course and a further three years as a postgraduate at the Royal
Academy of Arts. She is now one of Britain's leading animal sculptors, working in a variety of media, but mainly
bronze and wood.
"Tessa Pullan's interpretations of animal life have a directness and honesty which mirror the alert,
vital and spontaneous quality of the animals themselves. Whether untamed or domestic, whether depicted
in repose or moving with grace, there is something about these enormously attractive forms which rivets
the eye and warms the heart." -- Paul Mellon
