Sean Hedges-Quinn Statue of suffragette Alice Hawkins unveiled in Leicest

Sculptor Sean Hedges-Quinn on creating Alice“Alice was a strong-willed and strong-minded woman who believed passionately in her cause, and I wanted to show that spirit and determination.“Facing up to the hecklers who surrounded her in the market place would have taken guts, so Alice was clearly no shrinking violet. That’s why I’ve portrayed her in a confident stance, gesturing towards the crowds with defiance in her eyes.“I’m very proud to have been given this commission and hope that my statue will do justice to a truly remarkable woman.”Sean's previous commissions included Bobby Robson, Nat Lofthouse and Captain Mainwaring. www.seanhedgesquinn.co.uk
