For the past 11 years Helena Curry has worked within the Fine Art Sculpture and Special Effects industry, working for companies including Madame Tussauds, Artem, Crawley Creatures, Millennium FX, Event FX, Blind Summit, Sculptors Brian Alabaster and Andrew Sinclair.
In 2013 Helena received a scholarship from the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST) to further her studies in figurative sculpture with renowned artist and sculptor, Andrew Sinclair. Subsequently she went on to become Andrew's workshop assistant working on many prestigious commissions.
From there Helena took on her own studio in Buckinghamshire, sculpting her own work in the beautiful countryside with some friendly Shetland ponies for company.
Helena is passionate about truly understanding her subjects and spend hours observing every form and detail. She moulds all her own pieces and either casts them at the studio or sends them to the foundry to be produced in stunning bronze. Every piece is hand-finished to a very high standard.
