Vanessa Pooley
Vanessa Pooley is a sculptor living and working in Norwich, the city in which she studied at the School of Art. Her individualistic sculptures have been described as being ‘plumply at rest within their own bodies’. Her simple forms of curvaceous women, sometimes incorporating figures of children, are immensely sensual and tactile and have immediate appeal. Working in clay, then cast in bronze the figures develop strong characters of their own through sculptural process and surface treatment. She continues to build an oeuvre that is consistent within its own vision but never predictable.

Since her first exhibition in Southwark Cathedral in 1981 she has shown regularly in London and throughout the UK.

Her work is in numerous private collections and she has developed a strong following.
