Helen Sinclair was born in South Wales in 1954. She studies sculpture at Wimbledon School of Art. After teaching for 12 years, she has been a full-time sculptor since 1988. With her technician she does her own mouldmaking and resin casting. All her bronze sculpture is cast at the MB Fine Arts Foundry in Pembrokeshire.
The human figure is her primary subject: the actual figure and the figure as depicted by other artists in any medium and at any phase in history. Her influences include the sculptural forms and mythology of ancient civilisations and 12th Century sculptors: Emilio Greco, Medardo Rosso, Giacometti and most notably Willhelm Lehmbruck. She also looks to painting for inspiration, especially Picasso, Matisse, Chagail and Modigliani.
She exhibits widely in England and Wales and annually at the Chelsea Flower Show. Her customers include Lord Melvyn Bragg, Sir Robert Clark, chef Gary Rhodes, singer Bonnie Tyler, actress Sheila Hancock, actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, poet Roger McGough and Keith Chapman (creator of Bob the Builder!).
