Carol Peace studied sculpture at Winchester School of Art and drawing at The Prince’s Drawing School. She has obtained numerous commissions both public and private and solo shows in London, Athens, Zurich, France, Spain and Holland. In 2007, Peace co-founded the Bristol Drawing School and served as Artistic Director for four years.
Peace is a sculptor who could not work without drawing. The process of drawing, that intuitive response, is in part what she aims for in her work. She sculpts in clay, which like charcoal is quick to make marks with, once finished it is cast into bronze when those fluid marks of the making are then fixed.
Her work is intensely personal, and is shown and collected all over the UK, Europe, the Far East and United States. Her large-scale work is permanently on show at Glyndebourne and at the Dorchester’s country house hotel in Ascot.
On her artwork, author David Clensy said the following: "Walking into Carol Peace’s studio feels like arriving at a party in mid-flow. There seems to be people everywhere – some huddled close together and whispering, others striking a pose at various points around the room. Carol’s creations have a poise all of their own – elegant and caressing, they weave around each other like a room of bronze and resin lovers."
