History

History:‘Mary Cox - Sculptor
Mary Cox studied at Chelsea Art School under Willi Soukop, Bernard Meadows and Elizabeth Frink. Since leaving art school she has lived and worked in Sussex, where she has been commissioned to create works for churches and hospitals. Her work is characterised by its liveliness and sensitivity. Her sculptures of children, many based on her own family, are full of life and careful observation.
Her sculptured portraits in bronze include Malcolm Muggeridge and eminent members of the legal profession, but she specialises in children's portraits. She also sculpts small Limited Edition bronzes of mythological and religious subjects. Mary Cox has created many life size sculptures for gardens. Her life size figures can be cast in bronze or bronze resin, and are a lovely focus in a garden.
She undertakes commissions, such as the Memorial to Lyn Wyatt at Worthing District General Hospital. Associate of the Royal British Society of Sculptors since 2000’
