Michael Tandy was born in Worcestershire in 1942. He is a prolific sculptor and painter (often likened to the style of Renoir) of many subjects that have inspired him in his long career as a professional artist. “I paint and sculpt whatever pleases me at the time, and have covered an array of subjects in many different mediums, from ceramics to foundry bronze, water colours to oils.” On completion of his life size Peacock Sculpture, Michael simply said – “If it sounds difficult, then do it, as no great works are ever easy.” Michael is a former Professional Snooker Promoter…
