Artist Profile

Joanna Allen

Joanna Allen is an English sculptor. Her training has been both academic and atelier.  She has been fortunate to learn under and alongside many great international figurative sculptors. Joanna has a keen interest in current affairs, transferring thoughts and feelings about these issues into the pieces as she works, while also looking for a connection between the subject and the material.

Joanna works with traditional materials: bronze, clay and plaster, but also natural and sustainably sourced materials including wool, wood and found items. She is trained academically in figurative arts, however her interest is in the  contemporary with an element of Abstract Expressionism.

Her style is characterised by these genres which she uses as tools to explore questions of politics, culture and society.  Joanna’s work sits in museums and private collections throughout the UK, Europe and the USA.
