Juliet Cursham was born in the heart of foxhunting country in Leicestershire, England, where she was brought up surrounded by horses. The subject that has dominated her work ever since. Her sculpture is detailed but her main theme is always action and movement. This dynamic style is created from her excellent knowledge of anatomy and is built up in each of her pieces ‘muscle by muscle’.
Her life-long love of polo has taken her to many countries to study the sport including visits to the Argentine Open, The Florida Gold Cup and Elephant polo in Nepal. Her work can be seen all around the world and she has completed commissions for many notable collectors.
Juliet was made a full member of the Society of Equestrian Artists in 1990 and was awarded the British Sporting Art Trust and Slademore Gallery Sculpture Prize in both 1993 and 1995. Juliet is, almost without doubt, the finest realist equestrian sculptor in the world.
