ABOUT Carrie Reichardt

Carrie Reichardt's award-winning public work reflects her sustained engagement with people, place and politics, with a focus on marginalised groups - and in particular, women and their hidden histories.

Reichardt trained at Kingston University and achieved a First Class degree in Fine Art from Leeds Metropolitan. She was Artist in Residence at Camberwell Art College in 2009, The Clay Studio, Philadelphia, USA 2014  and in 2018 was the first visual artist in residence with The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.
