Helen Sinclair was born in South Wales in 1954 and studied sculpture at Wimbledon School of Art (1972 - 76). She has made her living as a full time sculptor since 1988. With her technician (traveller and writer Gary Ley) she does her own mould-making and resin casting and much of her work is now cast into bronze at the MB Fine Arts Foundry in Pembrokeshire.
The main body of Helen's work is figuratively based, however loosely at times. Her primary inspiration is. quite simply, the human form: the actual figure (in movement, at rest, clothed and unclothed) and as depicted by other artists (in any medium and at any phase in history). She models in plaster, clay, wax and mixed media. She is constantly working on new pieces and exploring fresh themes.
She exhibits widely in England and Wales and annually at the Chelsea Flower Show. She has work in private collections in Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Ireland, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland, America, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the Lebanon.
