MAKING ART FOR A BETTER TOMORROW
“No one will protect what they don’t care about; and no one will care about what they have never experienced.” - David Attenborough
Our unifying mission is to fill the world with inspiring public art that spreads messages of love, equality, conservation and hope. As public sculpture artists and wildlife activists, our method is to put wildlife front and centre in cities across the planet, making unforgettable experiences and recreating connections with the wild world. We aim to inspire a community that passionately works for change and unity so we can all live in a better world tomorrow.

"Since the opening of 'The Orphans' we have had so much positive feedback. Just so much incredible love for the elephants, it has been overwhelming! Many people want 'The Orphans’ to remain in London forever. And we can see it's a story that generations to come can connect with. Angela and the team over there are delighted, and blown away, by the repeat success in sales of the miniatures and so grateful to Gillie, Marc and all of you for your continued support. It’s so special that you continue to generate these critically important support for us, which makes a tangible difference to what we can achieve in Kenya".
Sonia Maria Sotomayor, American lawyer and jurist who serves as an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States
Gillie and Marc are two visionary artists who share a passion as I do for community service. I am humbled to be a part of their vision.
The sculpture is quite amazing. Looks a lot like me.
Virginia McKenna, Co-Founder and Trustee | Born Free Foundation
"Dear Gillie and Marc, I just wanted you to know that your beautiful lions are now happily settled in Newcastle. I felt the lion display was even better than in London, as they were placed closer together and it felt more like a pride. It was a very windy day but the sun came out, and we had a lovely group of school children- all with their sketch pads!
Personally I am deeply moved by your beautiful and unique work, and will always be grateful for the way you have brought the lions to life."
Kallen Marecic, Partnerships Manager | ReForest Now
"Gillie and Marc share ReForest Now's vision of seeing the immediate and effective restoration of Australian rainforest ecosystems. Through their art they have graciously funded the planting of 340 trees (as of April 2022) to restore a critically endangered ecosystem in northern NSW. We sincerely thank Gillie and Marc, and their community, for contributing and allowing us to act."
Michael Aisner, Vice President | RXR Realty, New York City
"Gillie and Marc have been wonderful to work with. We have green-lit five of their art projects over the last year, from the Financial District to Park Avenue. I find art kind of off-putting and stodgy, but Gillie and Marc's is really friendly and engaging. You can sit down and have a coffee with their bronze sculptures. You can’t do that with the Mona Lisa."
Laura Atria, Public Art Program Manager for The City of Pompano Beach
"The City of Pompano Beach Florida absolutely loves the bronze sculpture. It is the perfect addition to our growing collection. I think it works so nice at the entrance to the Library and south entrance to the Pompano Beach Cultural Center because of its whimsical charm."
Barry and the Karamea Council, New Zealand
"We were all very humbled as the paper covering was slowly taken off and we started to see our eagle (Hokioi) and Te Maia Kahurangi aloft. It was a long awaited moment and we were not disappointed. Gillie and Marc have nailed it. It is a true masterpiece and the team have captured the scene with skill and exceptional foresight to bring the Maori legend back to life. It has been a truly inspiring journey for all of us."
Jenn Honnery, Collinsville | NSW
"In 2015 the small mining community of Collinsville celebrated the 25th anniversary since the retirement of Australia’s last working pit ponies. The Collinsville pit ponies were in fact Clydesdale horses, renowned for their strength and intelligence. Your talent and ability to recreate the majesty that was the Collinsville Pit Pony has brought new meaning to our town and reunited our community in the process."
Richard Tindale, Owner | National Zoo & Aquarium
“Gillie and Marc created a full size bronze sculpture of our beautiful lioness Millie and her three cubs. The work has taken pride of place in the main garden at the entry to the zoo and to Jamala Wildlife Lodge and is a great attraction to many visitors. It is constantly photographed and is a magnificent piece of art.”
Judith A. Hayner, Project Director | Muskegon City | Public Art Initiative
"Working with you and Gillie and Marc on this project was a wonderful adventure, and the results could not be more amazing. Our Moxie has quickly become a beloved treasure of our community and a symbol of the fun and interesting things that people can experience in Muskegon, Michigan. Part of the appeal of Moxie certainly is the whimsical nature of the bronze sculpture, but I truly think that it is the beauty of the work of art that will guarantee its remarkable and continuing impact on our community."
Jeff Kahler, General Manager | Property & Asset Management | Brisbane Racing Club
"The bronze sculpture made for us by Gillie and Marc has become an impressive feature of the Eagle Farm Racecourse. Collaboration between our team and the artists during the artwork's creation was a smooth process, and the final product has realistic attention to detail. We couldn't be happier with how it tuned out, and we will enjoy watching our patrons admire the statue as they return to Eagle Farm Racecourse.”
Bernie Boller, General Manager | Pullman Hotels | Sydney, Australia
"We loaned about ten Gillie and Marc artworks for our opening night and then decided to purchase them to maintain that opening night atmosphere. Since then, the artworks have become an integral part of the personality of the hotel. Everyone including staff members and guests feels an affinity towards them, in particular Paparazzi. It’s a great way of cementing a different personality to our hotel. Gillie and Marc’s artworks are like adopting an extra member of the family or staff member. They are a lot of fun, and always provide a light moment.”
Matthew Fuller, Director | Dubbo Zoo | NSW, Australia
“Artists Gillie and Marc have done an amazing job [with Black Rhinos] of capturing such an iconic species in a very lifelike and natural way.”
Adrienne E Clarke, Chancellor Professor | La Trobe University | Melbourne
“The Run for your Life bronze sculptures are a welcome and striking addition to our Melbourne campus and appreciated by staff and students. Our family of rhinoceros are prompting discussion, delight and curiosity – traits encouraged by our University.”
John Klein, Marketing Manager | Federation Centres/Bankstown Central | NSW
“The team at Gillie and Marc were highly professional from start to finish and everything was executed with great attention to detail. Their work is simply stunning and stopped customers in their tracks.”
