Helen Denerley

Helen Denerley studied at Aberdeen Art School and lives on a remote farm in Aberdeenshire, surrounded by wildlife. Her imaginative animals are beautifully crafted from discarded scrap metal using pre-existing shapes and forms. She draws prolifically then creates her animals from her enormous scrap heap of redundant agricultural machinery, tools and old motor bikes, which find a new life in her lithe and expressive creatures. Her work ranges from delicately observed birds and insects to the monumental 24ft giant giraffes in Edinburgh. Helen’s work is now widely recognized, resulting in world-wide commissions from Japan to Canada. She has an extraordinary skill, born from her sense of draughtsmanship and observation, creating these graceful creatures from the discarded flotsam of our age.
