About Harriet Glen

Harriet Glen had a passion for animals at an early age. At eight, she made and sold clay horses to buy her first pony. After going to Art School in Newcastle, New South Wales, she taught Art in secondary schools in Sydney, but soon found she could combine early morning trackwork at Royal Randwick Racecourse with teaching. She won the Australian Lady Jockey Championship and by doing so, won a ticket to the UK, where she discovered her artistic ambitions could be realised by marketing her jewellery and sculpture alongside her equestrian activities. She rode in races all over the UK, Ireland, Denmark, Malta and France, with her racing career culminating with winning the Jersey Vase in the Channel Islands on her own horse, Hollow Tree. Harriet now lives in her farmhouse in Dorset, surrounded by horses, dogs, cats and wildlife. She says: "I want to portray the very essence of the animal or person: running, leaping, galloping, stalking, playing, concentrating, dozing, striving or just relaxing. I try to convert a fleeting glimpse into a tangible, three dimensional image, expressing its living presence".

Customer comment on 'Nocturne (Large Owl High Relief Wall Plaque sculpture)' by Wesley Wofford
Hi Peter, I saw the `Majestic` buck that Wesley did and adored it, but I wanted something original. So we tossed ideas around with Wesley and finally decided on the owl. Wesley was so incredible to work with, providing us ongoing progress updates as he went along. We are absolutely rhrillllled with the result..When we return to our condo, we will have the moulding faux`d so he will stand out even more. I can`t begin to express how incredibly talented we feel Wesley ... [Read more]
