HELEN DENERLEY is one of the UK’s leading wildlife artists and is best known for her scrap metal animals. She has had many major exhibitions (including four solo shows at Kilmorack) and has large work in many public spaces, including Edinburgh’s ‘Dreaming Spires’ Giraffes at the top of Leith Walk.

For Denerley, the creative process begins with a drawing – economic and alive, and ends with a metal sculpture that retains this life.
