Pam Taylor (1929 – 2014) ARBS. Pam trained at the Sir John Cass College (now part of London Guildhall University) and emerged as one of the most talented portrait sculptors of her time. One of her early portraits, Twenties Girl, demonstrated the exquisite nature of her work and a series of portrait commissions followed. These include John Thaw, Shelia Hancock and in 1987 her bronze portrait of William Shakespeare (both Shakespeare Platz, Berlin and The Globe Theatre, London). Her 2001 sculpture depicting the historic meeting of Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie was commissioned by publisher Felix Dennis and now forms part of the ‘Garden of Heroes and Villains’ at Dorsington in Warwickshire. Other public works include Pam’s delightful group of eight life-size children, Dockside Urchins, at London’s Tobacco Dock as well as life-size child figures for the Central Library, Redbridge.
