(b Thurlow, Suffolk, 14 Nov. 1930; d Wolland, nr. Blandford Forum, Dorset, 18 Apr. 1993). British sculptor and graphic artist. Some of her early work—influenced by Giacometti—was angular and menacing. During the 1960s her figures—typically horses and riders or male nudes—became smoother, but she retained a feeling of the bizarre in the polished goggles that feature particularly in her over-life-size heads.
