Jonathan Hateley has sculpted most of his life. After completing a degree in graphic design in 1986, where he concentrated on illustration in both two and three dimensions, he moved to London. He began sculpting for the theatre, firstly on the 'Phantom of the Opera' production and then for four years at the English National Opera Company. This was followed by many years working to tight deadlines and sculpting just about anything for TV, theatre and film. At this stage he was also illustrating for publishers. Having been through so many of the commercial applications for sculpture, he went on to enjoy the freedom to sculpt what he wanted. He has gone on to exhibit widely and his work is collected internationally.
He has a website showcasing all his work as well as a blog and Facebook page.
