Anne 
   Schwegmann-Fielding

Anne has been creating artworks for public and private spaces for 14 years. These works can be seen across the East of England in hospitals, schools, offices, homes and gardens both private and public.   

Commissions include the International Kunstsymposiumin  Germany, Barratt Homes, HSBC London, Broomfield and Colchester Hospitals, 2 Fantasy Rooms for the BBC and the London Garden Show.   

She recently undertook two major residencies.  The first at The Gardens of Easton Lodge in Great Dunmow where she curated the gardens first sculpture trail. She also worked with local schools to create mosaic garden furniture. She then created a sculpture for the Gardens of its previous owner. The Countess of Warwick, made entirely from objects unearthed from the gardens during restoration.

Angel Cow - created for International symposium in Thuringen, Germany 2006.  

Medium: materials donated by local people (Crockery, jewellery, old coins, mirror)

Her residency at Writtle College was a research and development residency funded by the Leverhulme Trust. A variety of artworks were produced, including a research and experimental piece in a wildflower meadow, a roundabout, light well and a series of glass covered objects shown during her exhibition at the college in June 2006. 

Anne exhibits her work nationally and internationally and has work in private and public collections. She has tutored, mentored, run workshops and given talks for various colleges, schools and organisations across East Anglia. 

She has been described as a Mosaic Artist, Sculptor, Landscape artist, Recycling artist, Educator and Folk artist.  She is difficult to pigeon hole – which she likes, preferring to just work with the materials that are at hand.  This is best described in her comment: 

“Much of my work is created in response to our disposable society.  If an object is slightly damaged, it is discarded rather than repaired and then quickly replaced.  Materials such as broken china, old teapots, shattered glass, pre “euro” coins and buttons are all incorporated within my work. 

By adorning discarded, functional objects I transform the readymade pushing “junk” into a fine art context.  The metamorphosis of the ordinary into the extraordinary continue to fascinate me.” 

Anne is available for commissions for homes, gardens, corporate clients and galleries.  Please contact her on: 01206 870337 or e-mail:
