Michael Talbot was born in Staffordshire in 1959, and has been fascinated by sculpture since childhood. He obtained an honours degree from Staffordshire University in 1980. He went on to postgraduate study at the Royal Academy School in London where he won the prestigious Landseer Prize. Michael is primarily a sculptor of the human image, specialising in portrait and figurative sculpture. Initially he was intrigued by its illusion of scale, which was one of the primary factors encouraging him to work in height from 3 inches to 12 feet.
|His work is widely collected and he is perhaps, best known for his study of beauty in the female form. Michael was elected to the Royal Society of British Sculptors in 1994 and is a former council member of the Society of Portrait Sculptors. His commissioned work includes, among others, the National Westminster Bank, British Aerospace and the National Trust for whom he did a life size bronze bust of Lord Patrick Lichfield. In addition his work is on permanent public display around the world as well as many other private collections.|
