Born in Suffolk, Maggi Hambling is one of Britain's most celebrated artists. Her first teachers were Arthur Lett Haines and Sir Cedric Morris at the Artists' House, Benton End, in Hadleigh, Suffolk, and she later studied at Ipswich School of Art, Camberwell School of Art and the Slade School of Fine Art. She has exhibited widely throughout the UK, as well as in the US and Ireland, and has won numerous awards, including her appointment as the first Artist in Residence at the National Gallery, London, in 1980-81, the Jerwood Painting Prize in 1995, and the Marsh Award for Excellence in Public Sculpture for the Aldeburgh Scallop in 2005.
"... in a period when many artists try to be sexy, and only end up being commercial and competitive, she's the real thing. For she knows backwards how the core of desire is vulnerability."
