About Jan Sweeney

Her love of all animals is supremely exemplified in all of her sculpture. Some catching that moment, whether the poise before the pounce of a big cat or the sudden turn of a swerving hare. She now spends much of her time in South Africa working on her beloved animals.

Biography / CV of Jan Sweeney

The daughter of an Irish vet, Jan Sweeney grew up in the open countryside of East Anglia, on the East coast of England. Her early training was at Colchester Art School, and she followed this with 3 years working in Verona, Italy, under sculptor Mike Noble. She first visited Africa in 1985 and the African scene and wildlife had a powerful influence on her work.

She now divides her time between the peaceful rolling hills of Somerset, South West England and the wild bush of the Zambezi Valley in Zambabwe. Her work therefore, portrays the animals of the English countryside and the game of the African bush. Horses are a particulare love of this accomplised horsewoman who has competed successfully in both eventing and dressage.

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."
