Steve Massam, wildlife artist and sculptor, was first drawn to the Falklands in 2001, and immediately fell in love with the wild and rugged landscape, the people and the way of life. Within a short time he had made the Islands his home.
Steve’s passion for natural history became apparent when he was seven years old and his mother discovered boxes of animal bones stashed under his bed! Steve went on to become an acclaimed British taxidermist.
In the Falklands, Steve initially worked for the Museum and National Trust, before going freelance to further his interest in sculpture.
He set up Hairy Daisy with his partner Sylvia to showcase the flora and fauna of these beautiful islands. He works in a wide range of materials, but especially enjoys the properties of pewter.
There may be no better way to communicate what we do than through images.
