Biography

A gardener and tree surgeon by profession and a passionate nature and bird lover, Thomas Poulsom rediscovered his love of building with Lego as an adult. He was inspired to create his first realistic Lego bird sculpture, a robin, when a real robin perched nearby while he worked in his garden. Poulsom has since expanded the scope of his Lego project to more than 30 birds from every continent; three – his robin, hummingbird, and bluejay – were recently accepted by Lego for production as a set. Poulsom's Lego bird designs have been featured in many online venues for Lego, design, gardening, nature, and birding enthusiasts. In 2013 he was a speaker at the PINC (People Ideas Nature Creativity) Conference in Zeist, Holland.
