Ana Duncan was born in Dublin. She works primarily in bronze and ceramic from her studio in Churchtown. The female figure has constantly been the subject and inspiration for her work. Amongst her influences are the abstraction of Henry Moore, the voluminous figures of Fernando Botero, Barbara Hepworth’s modernist work, the simplicity of Brancusi and the sculptures of Juan Muñoz among others.
She has recently completed several large scale public commissions in Jiangsu, China. In 2015 she completed a large-scale stainless steel public sculpture in Nashua, New Hampshire, USA. Other public commissions include a life size Mother and Child for Tallaght Hospital, Dublin.
