Hazel Reeves is a gifted figurative sculptor specialising in figures and portraits, working to commission in bronze.

“Curiosity in people, their faces and their stories form the heart of my artistic practice. My aim is to bring people on an emotional journey, to move people – move them to tears, to ask questions, to participate, to tell their own stories, to take action”.

Most recently, Hazel has been working on public commissions in bronze. Her 7ft 3in bronze of Sir Nigel Gresley, the eminent railway engineer, captured the public’s imagination at its unveiling at King’s Cross station (2016). Hazel’s bronze sculpture of Sadako Sasaki, commissioned for a peace garden in Wales, continues to inspire peace activism. She is never happier than when creating sculptures to tell the stories of struggles for social justice.

Hazel is on the Council of the Society of Women Artists, an elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) and the advising sculptor for the Hove Plinth initiative.
