Anne Curry is a member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors.
She is well known for her portraits which range from prestigious commissions to sensitive renditions of children.
Her outdoor sculpture has been exhibited across the UK, and is displayed in gardens on both sides of the Atlantic. Drawing inspiration from plant forms, she strives to evoke the power of life at work in nature.
Anne holds regular sculpture classes in her studio. For details please click here.
Her sculpture can be seen in her own studio and gardens, by appointment only.
Anne discovered the power of sculpture while working for a doctorate in Egyptology at Oxford University. “I see in the sculpture of Ancient Egypt the perfect combination of material, line, volume and tension.” Clean lines and inner energy are the fundamental principles of her work.
She is a painter and has exhibited with the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours. A passionate gardener, she is profoundly struck by the mathematical rules which underpin the process of growth in the natural world. Fascinated by plant development, she recorded her vegetable garden in a series of paintings for a solo exhibition, “Le Potager”, in Paris, in 1998.
At the same time, Anne began to explore sculpture. In 1989, she started studying with Rosemary Barnett, until recently Head of the Frink School of Figurative Sculpture. She was quickly recognised as an accomplished portrait sculptor at home and abroad: her high profile commissions have included the busts of Roy Jenkins, Michael Heseltine, and John Major, for the House of Commons collection of leading statesmen.
