Louise Giblin is a Member of the Royal Society of Sculptors. She grew up on the Isle of Wight and lives and works on the Kent/East Sussex border, UK. Her work is exhibited and collected internationally.
In 2017 she was the artist invited to represent UK in the G7 of Art, Italy, and was awarded the Lorenzo Il Magnifico Gold, 1st place for Sculpture by the International Jury at the Florence Biennale XI. In April 2018, she received an ATIM International Masters Award for Contemporary Art at the Museum of Art and Design New York. Louise is predominantly known for life casting – covering Olympians, famous people, war veterans, models and private clients with plaster or alternative media. She produces a clay three-dimensional copy of the person’s form that she uses like a blank canvas on which to create the model’s narrative imagery. She is not interested in physical portraiture so much as capturing the achievements, positive experiences and passions that people often project to protect their personal selves from scrutiny: she describes this as their ‘armour‘.
In this podcast we cover: Louise’s background; working with stars such as Kriss Akabusi MBE and Dame Kelly Holmes; how creative people can make a business out of what they do, and how Louise used goal mapping to achieve her targets, as well as more. Below you will find examples of Louise’s work:
