Diana Thomson FRBS

Main image - Diana Thomson FRBS with the late Freddie Francis BSC, President of the British Society of Cinematographers, at the unveiling of her bronze of William Friese-Green at Shepperton Studios on 15 January 1999 (Freddie won 2 Oscars (Academy Awards) for his cinematography; one for Glory 1989 in colour, and the other for Sons and Lovers, 1960, in black and white film).  There are three other busts of William Friese-Greene sited at Pinewood Film Studios; Panavision, Greenford, Middx. and Panavision, Woodland Hills, California.

I attended Kingston Polytechnic Sculpture department 1976-9.  I was elected ARBS in 1981 and FRBS in 1990.

I am now working on smaller pieces of sculpture, in terracotta and bronze; some directly inspired by the poems of D.H. Lawrence.
