Celia Scott Sir James Stirling, 1924 - 1992 1983 © Celia Scott


The sculptor Celia Scott is best known for her portrait heads of British and American artists and architects. Born in Bristol, she studied at Bath Academy of Art, Corsham and University College London. During the last twenty years she has worked and exhibited in Britain and internationally, including a solo show in Manhattan in 1991. She now works in the studio previously used by British sculptor Barbara Hepworth, in London’s Belsize Park. Scott’s work is in several private and public collections, and she has carried out commissions for the Mies van der Rohe Foundation, Sir Colin St John Wilson and Charles Jencks. She works from measurements, drawings and photographs taken during sittings, along with wide-ranging conversations to capture a sitter’s appearance as well as their character.
