Laurence Broderick was born in Bristol, 1935, and attended Bembridge School on the Isle of Wight. He studied painting, illustration and sculpture under Ray Millard and Geoffrey Deeley at the Regent Street Polytechnic from 1952 - 1957 and Sidney Harpley and Keith Godwin at the Hammersmith School of Art from 1964 - 1965.

In his figurative and abstract, bronze and stone sculpture, Laurence Broderick draws inspiration from the female figure and wildlife, in particular the otter and endangered species. When learning of the plight of turtles, polar bears, rhinos and elephants due to man's abuse, it had a profound and emotive effect on expressing his art.
He is joint president of the International Otter Survival Fund, a global charity for the conservation of the otter, based on the Isle of Skye.

Childhood influence from pebbles and bones with their subtle shapes and curves is at once apparent in the artist's stonecarving. His skill lends the work vitality, tactility and movement, emphasised by simplified forms, subtle curves, flowing lines and smooth surfaces, often contrasted by small areas of rough texture.
