Harry Iles was born in Tiger Bay Cardiff in 1951. He began carving whilst teaching as a VSO in Swaziland, where he saw the brutality of apartheid and the courage and warmth of those struggling against it. After studying Zoology at Cambridge he became a full time artist; teaching himself to cast bronze in a backyard furnace, carving tree trunks and stone in his studio, illustrating books and holding exhibitions.

Together with his art, Harry has taught, worked for charities, led community development in Monmouthshire and was the head of the Charity Commission’s office in Wales for 12 years. He is now chair of the Welsh Refugee Council.
