Meet the Sculptor
Robert has always had a lifelong passion for art, having initially pursued a business career until his mid-forties. At this point he returned to his first love, studying sculpture at the Heatherley School of Art in Chelsea, London, before moving to Bath, then Malta where he now lives.
In 2004 he retired from business to become a full time sculptor and artist. Now he works from his own studio undertaking bronze portrait bust commissions. His work has been exhibited in Cork Street London, Bath and Malta and his pieces purchased by collectors from around the world.
Robert received great accolades of his portrait commission of Admiral Lord Nelson, which drew media interest due to the incredible similarities of the Nelson features 200 years on, when Nelson’s great great great great granddaughter, Anna Tribe’s own profile showed a remarkable likeness to her illustrious forebear.
Robert has a reputation of sculpting well known public figures, among them the President Abela of Malta. Robert will undertake private commissions and memorial bronzes and feature sculptures for outdoor landscapes and gardens.
IN THE PRESS
Standing next to the depiction of Admiral Lord Nelson, Strickland's bronze bust, in profile, offered evidence of how long the DNA of his family nose and high forehead had endured more than 200 years after Nelson's death in 1805. A remarkable resemblance that Nelson's great great great granddaughter was impressed with.
