Lydia Segrave attended Maidstone College of Art in Kent, and then worked in advertising and publishing. She started sculpting in 1993 and now has a studio in Oxford. Her work has been exhibited in various galleries in the UK, Ireland and France.
The bronze sculptures on this site range from near realism to fairly abstract forms. Lydia is as concerned to depict the mood or attitude of a subject as to represent it: “My father was Irish and my mother Scottish, and I think a bit of Celtic imagery gets into some of the pieces. I nearly always work with molten wax since the fluidity of this material lends itself well to suggesting movement. I produce small editions of between four and ten bronze casts of each work.”
