Geoff and Fiona Squire

Geoff and Fiona Squire

I was introduced to Geoff and Fiona by my good friend, Hector Brown. They have for many years been collectors of sculpture and the first bronze they bought of mine was the Derby Trophy maquette of 2005. I later made a study for them of the 2005 Derby winner, Motivator, enlarging it to two thirds life-size.

In the Spring of 2011, I made life-sized bust studies of them both. Working from photographs and sketches, I spent the first three weeks sculpting in my studio and then, later, working from life, I completed the studies in two separate sittings.

Quote from Fiona, “We were very pleased with the bust studies. Will has shown every one of Geoff’s wrinkles perfectly and none of mine!”
