Henrietta has been making sculpture from her studio in Oxfordshire for the past fifteen years. Before this she worked as a doctor, writer, editor and broadcaster. All these experiences feed into her work. She has a degree in the History of Art from Cambridge University and studied fine Arts in London (at the Sir John Cass school of Art, Middlesex University and Morley College) and in Brussels. She exhibits internationally, with work in private and public collections across Europe and the UK, and welcome commissions.
She makes sculpture for the garden in the shape of animals and figures and over the past few years has concentrated particularly on animals. "Lockdown has impressed upon me how vitally important animals (both wild and tame) are to our wellbeing. That’s why I particularly want to celebrate them as we emerge again from our homes."
Henrietta calls her sculptures ‘Drawings on the landscape’ because each work retains the vivacity of drawing but the ‘lines’ are made from weatherproof steel. The sculpture’s surroundings are glimpsed ’between the lines’ so that the work interacts with its environment in a pleasing way. They look good in many parts of the garden – on the lawn, against a wall, hedge or fence or even in a flower-border.
The colour can be changed on request and Henrietta is always happy to discuss individual requirements.
