Beth is a highly credible sculptor within the UK’s contemporary sculpture scene. Manipulating traditional materials such as bronze and marble, she creates works that offer a commentary on our frenetic Western lives, often embedded with a light- hearted essence of humour. The suit, or a shirt and tie, have become a key emblem in her work as she explores what they signify, whether that be money, hard work, the City worker or banker, as well as the suit as a uniform, and thus as timeless. Beth also created a 16-foot marble sculpture, Dhow Sail, which was commissioned by the Dubai Opera house in 2016.
Beth studied at John Moore’s in Liverpool and at the Royal College of Art, with her work being shown consecutively in two London parks. She then honed her craft working and producing works for Edwardo Paolozzi, Elisabeth Frink and Alberto Giacometti, before becoming a studio assistant with Mike Bolus and then Sir Antony Caro.
She has worked on projects with Sir Norman Foster on the Millennium Bridge, Richard Rodger, Tate and worked on shows at the Venice Biennale. After taking time out to help husband Tom Kerridge launch the only 2 Michelin-Star pub in the world, The Hand and Flowers, Beth has been engrossed in perfecting her technique of marble carving, which she is often fine-tuning with the artisans in Italy.
