Jill Desborough

Jill Desborough is a sculptor, printmaker and also a creator of rod puppets, as shown here. The characters take shape in her imagination, or are inspired by mythology, carnival, dark fairytales or writers such as Mervyn Peake and Chaucer. Her puppets can be commissioned or colour customised.

Jill notes that her sculptures “echo these sources and the appeal of the curious and macabre…the darker side that we are sometimes attracted to as part of the human condition.”
