About

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.

After working for several years on the human figure, Anne has once again found inspiration in nature and embarked on a new journey of discovery in her beloved garden. Captivated by life unfurling and developing in the form of flower buds, leaves and seed pods, she strives to translate this extraordinary process into stone, or, on a monumental scale, into bronze or resin.

Anne’s portraits and nudes have featured in solo and group exhibitions in London, Paris, Geneva and Bordeaux. Her garden sculptures have been exhibited at Newby Hall in Yorkshire, Levens Hall in Cumbria, Sir Harold Hillier Gardens in Hampshire, Painswick Rococo Gardens in Gloucestershire, Burghley House Sculpture Garden in Lincolnshire, at the Duin and Kruidberg Estate in Santpoort in the Netherland, and with Beddington Fine Art in Bargémon in Var, France.
