Animal Friends was started by Biddy Picard in 1977. John Parkes and Barbara Pilkington helped out on a temporary basis intially but eventually took over in 1980. They produce a wide range of birds and animals, each individually hand-crafted. John is especially noted for his larger pieces of work such as gannets and and cormorants.

John and Barbara's work is available from many craft shops and galleries in Corwall and further afield.
