ANNA BISSET



"The combination of my experience in an industrial foundry and my background and continued
interest in painting, illustration and three-dimensional work, resulted in an MA study in
large-scale cast-metal-work and welded steel sculpture. One of the pieces I made on this course
'Figurehead', was acquired by London Docklands Development Corporation in November 1996 and was
installed in Poplar Dock, East London in March 1998.
Subsequent teaching work and training at Waltham Forest College runs alongside further painting,
print-making and public art. I am curently preparing a series of paintings and monoprints,
"Sea Interludes", for exhibition in Aldeburgh, Suffolk, August 1998."
