In the latest Spotlight On series, Woodingdean in Business met Eve Shepherd, a sculptor based in Woodingdean.
I didn’t particularly enjoy school but I always loved art. I really wanted to do special effects in films so I went to college to do a BTEC National. While I was there I got signposted through many different routes to Anthony Bennett. He is an amazing animal sculptor and I was lucky enough to work as his apprentice for a few months in Sheffield. He introduced me to sculpting and obviously saw something in me, so after a few months passed me on to a big, international company in York, where I ended up becoming head of department and looking after sculptors twice my age!
