Ann Hogben studied Art and Sculpture at Homerton College, Cambridge and has been involved in painting and sculpture for many years in various media.
She has latterly concentrated on working with clay.
Ann is particularly interested in making figurative sculptures, especially children, and enjoys capturing the individual character of each subject.
After completion, each piece of work is fired and cast in bronze resin which is suitable for displaying outside or inside. The sculptures are then patinated in a brown bronze finish.
Ann was awarded the Peter Hambro prize 2002 for sculpture at the Society of Women Artists.
She was commissioned by Kay Yamada for a figurative water feature ("Ann") in her Silver Medal show garden at the Chelsea Flower Show. More recently she has completed a commission from the Lisa Thaxter Trust for the Royal Marsden Hospital childrens ward.
Ann has undertaken a number of private commissions of children.
Her work is exhibited regularly at the Chelsea Flower Show, the Country Living Fair and at Pashley Manor Gardens, Ticehurst, Sussex.
