completed formal studies in ceramics.

metamorphosed into sculptural forms, such as crazy teapots and
decorative pieces. Ingrid completely transitioned to making
sculpture and specializes in stylized, figurative work, mainly
depicting women, exploring emotions, concerns for animals and the
Ingrid loves the tactile quality of clay and the three dimensional
aspect of sculpture.
Her work is represented by Bird’s Gallery, Kew. She exhibits on a
regular basis, nationally as well as internationally.
She also enjoys teaching in the sculpture school, she runs with her
husband and finds it a wonderful balance to her creative life.
created a ‘Tree of Life’ sculpture of my life and in my visual diary
I quoted all things I wanted to include: my love for family, my love
for nature and animals, my love for people, friends, my love for the
arts, for clay, for books, the sun, the outdoors, etc. , in short my
love for the life I live.
To me giving and receiving love creates untold happiness. I hope,
that this love infuses my work and touches people in some way.
