For more than 40 years Scott has been involved in modelling and sculpture, initially with the Royal Marine Commandos and then as a freelance modelmaker, sculptor and lecturer. His work included historical and landscape models, exhibition displays for museums and aquariums, and commissions at a range of scales.
As time went by Scott's passion for nature and wildlife became more and more visible in his work, and for the past 20 years he has specialised in sculptures of sharks and other wildlife, working in cold cast bronze as well as resin. He was a finalist in the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year competition, and has exhibited in galleries from The Mall in London to the Highlands of Scotland.

Working by hand
Scott Gleed's bronze artworks are perfect for corporate settings and private homes, whereas his life-size, anatomically accurate sharks most often find homes in aquariums, exhibitions and visitor centres - locations where they can communicate a powerful message about conservation and the power and beauty of nature.
Whatever the size of the finished sculpture, each is hand built by Scott in his remote steading studio near the Moray coastline in Northern Scotland. This dedicated space enables the accuracy necessary for sculptures destined for exhibitions, and gives Scott the room and light needed to capture the sense of motion that brings all his sculptures to life.
