British artist Dean Patman has been fascinated by animals ever since he was little. As a child he drew them, but now he uses everyday objects like spoons, forks, teapots and knives to create impressively life-like animal sculptures.
"I’ve always been a little nutty about animals." he says, "At school my teachers soon learnt that the best way to motivate me was to make it about animals. I especially loved being able to draw or model them."
