Hazel Reeves is a figurative sculptor, working to commission in clay for bronze, with a curiosity in people, their faces and their stories.
Her passion is for telling stories in bronze of struggles for social justice and redressing the lack of diversity in statues on our streets, particularly the lack of women represented. Hazel wants to engage and move people – moving them to tears, to ask questions, to participate, to take action, to tell their own stories.
Hazel is perhaps best known for her bronze public commission such as Sir Nigel Gresley at King's Cross Station, the women biscuit factory workers – the Cracker Packers – in Carlisle, and suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst in Manchester.
She is a Member of the Royal Society of Sculptors (MRSS), the Society of Women Artists and Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (RSA).
