   Apollo, 2009     Dimension:Life-size     Materials:driftwood 

Artist: Heather Jansch
Born in Essex, England in 1948 (currently 65 years old)

Walthamstow and Goldsmiths College, London 1967

From the beginning my twin passions were drawing and horses, my hero was Leonardo da Vinci, and my dreams were of becoming an artist living in a wooded valley with clear flowing water at my door and horses grazing all around.

I chose Heather Jansch and her work because it beautifully depicts art in such a raw form using materials from the earth. She very thoughtfully places the driftwood and shapes these graceful equin life-size sculptures to portray them in their natural setting.
