RBSA

Hannah Northam is a professional sculptor working from her studio in Harborne, Birmingham. She was born in Cambridge and grew up in Melbourne, Australia. Hannah began sculpting in 1988 under the tuition of the celebrated sculptor John Tonks ATD FRBS at Birmingham University and at Dudley Campus. She then went on to study full time and to specialise in figurative sculpture, graduating in 1998.

Hannah works in many mediums and scales, carving in stone and plaster, modelling in clay and wax and casting in bronze and other materials. She produces many works to commission, from portrait busts to large outdoor work, with pieces in private and public collections nationwide. Her sculptures are a combination of abstraction and realism, mostly derived from the figurative. Being inspired by the truth in natural forms and the human body, sculpture is her way of expressing the emotive context and creative spirit found in life.
