Carlos Dare – Sculpture

Carlos DareI was born in Surrey in 1976 and I have been interested in making things from a young age, with clay, card and other materials so I let my imagination take over and just create.

I loved to draw as well and the prospects of wanting to go into animation, books and the stage did push aside the notion of ever becoming a full time sculptor.

This all changed when I left school and went Northbrook College of Illustration where they broadened my horizons.

For almost twelve years I have been a full time sculptor, working primarily in metal; mainly aluminium.

The pieces are assembled with a few hand tools and fixed together with rivets.

As a side-line I have been putting together a story with my illustrations which I hope to make into a book someday.

Today I live in Lincolnshire where I commute to shows and work with clients around the country.
