On completing her education Patricia Northcroft was employed as an assistant editor with a publishing company, where, in particular, she enjoyed working with materials involving birds and other wildlife. It is this experience, combined with her love of the countryside, that she feels she still draws on today for her sculpture work.

 

Patrica also works in clay and has had many commissions from Royal Doulton and other reputable companies, producing mostly figurines for reproduction into porcelain and some ballet sculptures for commercial reproduction. All the bronze sculptures of birds have been accepted for inclusion in the Society of Wildlife Artists' Exhibitions at the Mall Galleries in London and work has been shown at the Contemporary London Art Fairs at Olympia and Islington and also in the Bath Arts Festivals.
