Heather Jansch

Born in the greater London area, sculptor Heather Jansch now makes her home in Devon and is famous for her figures of horses and now other animals done in driftwood from the Devon coast and fallen oakwood collected around her country home.

Heather's love of horses saw her first make a living painting equestrian commissions, then experimenting with horse sculptures from wire before moving on to the larger wooden forms, which have made her fame and fortune.

Heather's studio in Olchard north of Newton Abbot can be visited each year during the Devon Open Studios event, which was held this year from 5-20 September.

In 1999 Heather was part of the millennium exhibition "The Shape of the Century - One Hundred Year of British Sculpture" which brought her work to a wider, international audience.
