Bio

Following a career in television, emerging sculptor Suzie Edwards studied life sculpture at Hampstead School of Art and then Morley College. Having access to life models allowed Suzie to become a skilled portrait sculptor and also observe anatomy and human movement to inform her figurative work. She now has her own studio but regularly attends masterclasses as part of her professional development. Suzie has organised her own exhibitions with other local artists and has had pieces selected by juried exhibitions. Suzie works primarily in clay and wax, having her work cast in bronze using the lost wax method. She also casts in Jesmonite and plaster.

Artist Statement

My work originally focussed on portrait sculpture, not only creating a recognisable likeness of the sitter but also trying to imbue it with their personality. I also enjoy dynamic figurative sculpture. I started my "Stickman" series exploring human emotions held in the body as an expression of my own short-lived "despair". My wax maquettes provoked such a strong response in visitors that I decided to cast them as they were and keep them small to add to their vulnerability. I am currently working on more, always hoping to engage the viewer. I am also developing other larger pieces exploring being human.
