Portrait of Ellie




Clare Abbatt is an Associate Member of the Northampton Town & County Art Society


I enjoy portrait sculpture, figurative work and the creative collaboration of working to commission.

After sculpting alongside family life and part-time teaching for a number of years, as a mature student I returned to college to study Fine Art at the University of Northampton, graduating with BA First Class Hons and my MA the following year.


Clare Abbat Sculptures in Wicksteed Park, KetteringIn 2014 I was commissioned by Wicksteed Park, Kettering to create two life-size sculptures of children, cast in bronze. They were installed in the newly restored paddling lake in March 2015.


I curated and made new work for 'Step into my Shoes - Significant Journeys on Foot' at Northampton Museum and Art Gallery (click the link to view photos and a short video).
