Creative Christmas Advent Calendar: Portrait Sculpture06 Dec 16
Drawing School tutor Sophie Howard gives tips on portrait sculpture
Sophie is a sculptor who works with ceramics and other media. She has taught sculpture for thirty years, recently specialising in life sculpture from yoga, and portraiture at the RWA Drawing School.
As well as portraits, the pieces she produces are often in series exploring themes, such as the recent 'City Life' sculptures of buildings that are also people.
Her sculpture is available through galleries around the UK. She has also designed ornaments for the garden industry, including obelisks and birdbaths, Buddhas and beasts.
Born in Dorset in the 1950s, Sophie grew up in Yorkshire and attended Winchester Art School, moving to London, and later to Bristol. She lives and works in Bristol.
