I was born in Solihull in 1953 and have had a great passion for art for as long as I remember. In my younger days, I worked as an apprentice making frames for racing motorcycles. Then, I had a family and we moved to Wales after my daughter left for university. It was here where Jankowski Weathervanes was born; the local landscape and wildlife providing ample inspiration for some memorable pieces. I have been designing bespoke metalwork pieces for individuals, businesses and as public building centerpieces for many years. I have also worked on a number of school and community art projects, deriving great pleasure from the joy that pieces of art can bring to community spaces. During this time, I have worked on three continents with displays at The Welsh Assembly, The Royal Welsh Show and on a range of TV and cinema programmes.
