Susan Hammond - artist and sculptor



I am an artist and sculptor based in England specialising mainly in animal themed works. Having worked in both wildlife and domestic animal rescue fields I have gained a knowledge of both the physical and spiritual nature of a wide range of species. My home is always shared with a variety of rescued animals who inspire me in my work and often make good critics!

I am mostly self taught and like to work in acrylic and watercolour. My sculptures are often described as paper mache/mixed media as they are made from a unique paper-based clay that dries to a hard and durable finish that can then be painted and varnished. The sculptures are very time consuming, consisting of an armature, a paper covering, followed by layers of clay and paint. I love to see the character of each animal coming to life throughout the process as each one has its own personality, just like their real life models.

I specialise in painting pigeons, both feral and domestic breeds. Pigeons are either loved or hated and I adore them. They are misunderstood and their beauty is often overlooked which is why I aim to show their true colours - literally! If you have a pigeon and would like a painting please get in touch.

Sculptures can be bought or commissions taken through my shop www.etsy.com/shop/albertinebelle
