Marie Boyle is from Dublin, Ireland and has been practicing sculpture for 20 years here in the UK.
Based near the Chilterns in Buckinghamshire, Marie’s first love of the clay is finding the figurative form. Being self taught, her love for the dancer, athlete , circus performer and the mythological are evident in her oeuvre .
“In my little workshop, I am transported to another world as I work on my pieces. Had I trained as a figurative sculptor , I possibly would be more prolific, but I must admit I love the laborious hunt through the clay for the torso, the limb, the gaze, the mood. Not knowing what one is going to find on a particular day or how indeed a piece is going to finish, is my eternal conundrum and joy !”
