Reece briefly worked as a taxidermist before studying Sculpture at Brighton College of Art in 1985 and then completing an MA in Site Specific Sculpture at Wimbledon School of Art.
His interests are in form, mass, weight, material, the tactile nature of objects and above all animals and birds. All his earliest memories are of the wildlife in Zambia where he lived with his family as a small child.
His practice is very varied, working on commissions, as an artist in schools and communities, teaching and his own private work. The common theme is trying to communicate and share a joy of looking at the natural world and making and engaging with materials.
