Glenis Devereux MCSD ARBS

Glenis is an internationally acknowledged Commercial Sculptor, now making her mark in the world of Fine Art Sculpture. Self-trained and freelance, she works in a traditional style specialising in figurative work, with the main emphasis being on grace and elegance of face and form.

Her very first sculpture - a life-size bust of Elvis Presley cast in bronze - was successfully auctioned at Sotheby's, New Bond Street, London. Although initially sculpted for personal reasons, this work heralded the start of her professional career.

Glenis has been commissioned over the years to design and sculpt for many major international companies and institutions, which include Royal Worcester, Spode, Coalport, Boehme (UK) Danbury Mint, Franklin Mint, Ashton-Drake (USA) and The Chelsea Flower Show, London. Please view a few past commercial works under heading: Devereux Art Commissions.

Her experience in the design of fine English bone china and porcelain figurines, led her to develop a very unique and personal service whereby, working from sketches or photos, she can create an exquisite bone china replica figurine of a Bride in her own bridal gown. Photos of a sample Personal Commemorative Figurine and a Personal Commemorative Bridal Vase may be viewed under heading: Bridal & Wedding Heirloom Keepsakes.

While to date Glenis has free lanced, creating designs for commercial reproduction and worldwide distribution, in more recent years she has concentrated on her Limited Edition Bronze figurative works. Her development of a series of finely detailed period 'Bathers' is ongoing, these having become something of a Devereux signature theme. It is a subject which allows her scope to portray a combination of the most endearing of feminine traits: sensuality, beauty, serenity and elegance but always with an underlying sense of strength.

Pan, however, is the antithesis of all things feminine and an opportunity to demonstrate an ability in portraying the male with his intrinsic masculine traits. Pan’s wicked yet mischievously handsome countenance should strike a cord with males and females alike.

A whimsical departure from figurative themes is her sculpture entitled 'A Very Special Bird' (a golden bronze egg, on dark bronze twigs) an idea she has nurtured for some years.

Her acceptance into arguably the two most prestigious and internationally acknowledged professional societies in their field as under, is testimony to her ability in spanning the diverse fields of Industrial Design and Fine Art. She is the first (and possibly still the only) sculptor to have been accepted into the Chartered Society of Designers.
