Tim Cotterill: Frogman

Born: Leicester
Lives and works: California, USA
“Frogs are fun creatures! I have tried to capture their individual spirit, their fun, and their joy. ”

Tim, also known as Frogman, is the biggest-selling bronze artist in the world thanks to his energetic bronze frogs. His passionate collectors span the globe.


After leaving school at the age of 15, Tim completed a six-year engineering apprenticeship, which sparked his love for metalwork. During the 1970s and 80s, he created metal sculptures of animals, birds and vehicles. In 1990, the Leicester-born artist moved to California, where he built his Venice Beach studio, complete with a frog and koi pond.

His enthusiastic personality and colourful sculptures have captivated a diverse range of collectors, many of whom remark on the frogs’ incredibly lifelike facial expressions.

Tim says: “Frogs are fun creatures! I have tried to capture their individual spirit their fun and their joy. Any artist should encourage emotion – it should grasp you.”
