Bronze by Elisabeth Hadley
Though I was born and bred in Yorkshire I now live in Devon. In my studio I sculpt beautiful, graceful and sensual figures, which I then have cast into limited edition bronzes.
I studied Ceramics for my B.A at Bristol Polytechnic.
I then went on to study the figure at the Sir Henry Doulton school of Sculpture.
Between these years of studying I spent a year working as a model maker for Aardman Animations, during this time I was asked to be the voice of Wendy in the cult plasticine animated series; "Rex the Runt".
I have won several design competitions and worked on some large figurative commissions; The Dartmouth Mermaid and Man and Boy, Brixham.
I am inspired by mythology, Greek myths are found woven into my sculptures,
I live close to the sea and when not sculpting I will be out kayaking, I feel my love of being out on the water and so close to nature is what sparks my interest in all those ancient gods and goddess.
