Holly Bennett

Holly Bennett makes sculpture of people, animals and unusual creatures, which she uses as metaphors to tell an internal narrative. Working with great consideration, integrity and humour, and communicating through direct visual impact and shared emotive response, she creates sculpture that speaks to an audience who is interested in engaging with areas of deeper significance within our lives.

The original sculpture is modelled in wax and then cast as a limited edition into a vibrant British-made eco-resin, which creates an aesthetic that keeps the beautiful translucent qualities of the wax, while remaining accessible to a wide audience.

Holly gained a BA(Hons) in Sculpture from Wimbledon School of Art in 1995, and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Sculpture from The City and Guilds of London Art School in 1998, and an MA in Design from the University of the West of England in 2020. She has won many awards and exhibits widely.
