Breathing Life into Bronze
Man and Boy, Brixham

Welcome

My passion for sculpting is split equally between the figurative and the stylised; I especially enjoy sculpting subjects from Greek mythology and my classical female forms are recognised as being full of grace and beauty. I have won several national competitions, and my work can now be found in many national and international private collections.

I welcome both public and private commissions whether it be a family portrait, a sculpture for your home, garden or office or something monumental for a town centre. If you have an idea in mind please  get in touch.

Commissions

My most recently completed major sculpture ‘Man and Boy’ was a community project. I was heavily involved with, not only proposing and sculpting the figure but also moulding the piece.

Sculpting Classes

Anyone can sculpt. It is very much a learned skill and  you don’t need to have any kind of inherent artistic ability to get started.  There are many materials you can use for sculpting, but the most common and easiest to teach and learn with is clay. So why not give it a go?

I run weekend courses at the Dartington Hall Estate. Here you will learn sculpting techniques as well as basic anatomy using a life model and sculpting in clay. I’ll show you how to measure, to assess muscle and bone structure and to capture the feel of the pose and the life, character and vitality of the model.

A relaxing and fulfilling weekend workshop sculpting from life in clay. Appropriate support and instruction is given from a sympathetic professional sculptor for all levels – beginner to experienced. A very enjoyable and good value 2 day course

Elisabeth is so skilled and knowledgeable, and is happy to support beginners learning something new and those with more experience

The pose was really interesting and, thanks to your great teaching, patience and encouragement, my finished sculpture far exceeded my own expectations

It was an amazing weekend! I’m going to sign up again

Thank you for guiding my observations of the proportions and complex forms of the human body

I felt relaxed and encouraged to express myself
