Helena Curry

2013 QEST Scholar - Sculpture

Helena’s QEST Scholarship provided her with the opportunity to further her sculpting skills, learning from a true master of classical figurative sculpture. She spent a year taking weekend workshops with Andrew Sinclair at The Sculpture School, which then led to her working for him on a daily basis. This was a fantastic experience for Helena and has given her an insight in to working as a commercial sculptor.

Helena now works mainly from her Buckinghamshire studio, splitting her time between freelance work in the Special Effects industry, sculpting and specialist puppet restoration including foam latex Spitting Image puppets and movie props and memorabilia.

My greatest passion is design and form, be that within sculpture, puppet restoration or creature effects.
