Art UK, Timed Auction (51/68)


I’m a figurative sculptor, working to commission in clay for bronze, with a curiosity in people, their faces and their stories.

My life-long activism weaves its way through my artistic practice. My passion is for telling stories in bronze of struggles for social justice and redressing the lack of women represented, one statue at a time. I want to engage and move people – moving them to tears, to ask questions, to participate, to tell their own stories, to mobilise. A statue must be a catalyst for change.

I’m perhaps best known for my bronze public commissions such as Sir Nigel Gresley at King’s Cross Station, the women biscuit factory workers – the Cracker Packers – in Carlisle, and suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst in Manchester. You may have seen these on TV.

But my artistic practice is never static. Choreography underpins it all; choreographing stories in bronze, choreographing dancers, choreographing the sounds of nature. The outputs vary but the motivation remains the same. I want to move people, literally, figuratively.

I’m a Member of the Royal Society of Sculptors (MRSS), the Society of Women Artists and Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (RSA). I live and work with the spinal condition Axial Spondyloarthritis (AS).
