History

Neil Cater

I was born in Otley, West Yorkshire in 1963. After leaving school in 1979, I moved to London where I worked for a large publishing house for the next ten years, working on an advertising copy desk. In 1986 I moved out of London, but continued to work there, travelling daily by train. During my time at IPC Magazines I would supplement my income (ie. earn a bit of beer money) by making brooches, little clay models, paperweights etc. for my colleagues at work.

Eventually, due to increasing travelling costs, I left my job in London and started making small resin fireplaces and Agas, which I sold at craft fairs most weekends. I was eventually "spotted" by Mr Bob Hopwood, who invited me to attend his Miniatura show in Birmingham. I started producing sculptures around 1990 (my first efforts were rather crude, but with patience and practice have gradually improved).

I am married - to Joanne - and look after our small son, Tom, full time. I work part-time from a converted cobbler's workshop at the bottom of the garden.

In 1999 I was awarded an IGMA fellowship.
