Gill Brown SWA

Winner of the Visitors' Choice Award at Art Parks International exhibition in November 2015. In 2014 at the Society of Women Artists annual Exhibition, Gill was awarded 'Best in Show' for her body of work. She has also exhibited at several major London Fairs including Olympia Fine Art Fair, the BADA Fair and Berkeley Square. Born and raised in Liverpool, Gill studied sculpture at Liverpool College of Art. She travelled widely, North America in her twenties where she worked as a freelance commercial artist and Kenya in the 1970's. After returning from Kenya in 1977 Gill taught sculpture and pottery and, during this period, began to build up a body of work. She is now a hugely successful sculptor whose work is much desired, recently selling her 350th bronze!

Gill works directly in wax for small pieces or clay for larger works and casts only in bronze. Each stage at the foundry is personally overseen. Her work is diverse but always inspired by movement. Much of her sculpture is abstract and wildlife is her greatest inspiration, from soaring Arctic terns to fleet-footed horses. Gill's talents aren't restricted to sculpting, she has written many articles, comedy and poetry for radio and published two novels.
