"Luke Shepherds`s bronze portrait sculpture exhibits a clearly recognizable style, capturing the unique strengths and subtle nuances of each sitter. He has skillfully moved beyond his formative years into a mature and sought after bronze portrait sculptor. With early success in both in the Royal Academy, London and the Academie des Beaux-Arts, Paris" Maurice Quillinan - critic and reviewer.
Sculpture: 'Billy Connolly (bronze life sized Portrait Bust Celebrity sculpture)' by Luke Shepherd
Bronze Portrait Life Sized Commissioned/Custom Bust of the Celebrity Billy Connolly Statue for sale or Commission Modelled in the dressing rooms of the Theatre Royal, Bath over 4 consecutive evenings, by Luke Shepherd with such Skill and Charm 1st edition purchased by John Reid Enterprises and 2nd owned by Billy. Billy Connolly, known for his long, messy hair, "goatee" beard and lots of bad language in his stand-up show, was born and brought up in Glasgow, Scotland. He left school to work in the shipyards where he became a welder. He developed an interest in folk music, eventually becoming an accomplished banjo player and a member of the band "Humblebums" with Gerry Rafferty (later of "Baker Street" fame). The jokes he told between songs eventually took over his act and he became a full-time Comedian. He is by some considerable margin UK`s Top Comedian.
Billy Connolly Billy Connolly CBE "The Big Yin put me at ease right from the start. His eccentric and insightful chatter was far too interesting, which made concentrating on the work at hand all the more difficult.".
