Billie Bond is a figurative sculptor who explores the human form through social and cultural identity, capturing a sensitivity that relates closely to her own experiences of life. As a mother, aspects in the changes of motherhood stimulate her strong feelings of concerns in an ageing population of first-time mothers. Billie continues to experiment with materials and processes to achieve highly crafted objects of aesthetic beauty.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."
