Jane Ackroyd works mainly in metal. As a child she was inspired by hours spent in a forge in the small town of Palafrugell, northern Spain, watching the Blacksmith work. She says “from an early age I could see that steel could speak and create a feeling of drama and beauty.”  She studied at the Royal College of Art where she was taught by Anthony Caro, Philip King, Eduardo Paolozzi among others.
