April Young is an established British sculptor producing expressive, figurative pieces in a variety of materials from clay to foundry bronze. Movement and the natural world, in particular sensitive, yet unsentimental animal studies are strong features in the work. Her concepts are often enriched by her love of literature, folklore and mythology.

Over the years April has grown a reputation most closely associated with horses as a main subject. The surfaces of her Carousel horses reflect the many different cultural elements that have produced the relationship between man and horse.  The starting point for this is from the artist’s own childhood and life journey, but reaches out to other landscapes, real and imaginary, as the adolescent mind dreams of possible futures.  

April has completed numerous commissions for private clients utilising imagery from their own experiences. This process also extends very effectively to community-based projects, allowing groups to share their experiences and aspirations in a visual way. She is currently working on an ongoing, Arts Council funded project called 'Gifted' in the East Midlands, which explores this potential through life sized Carousel Horses, the surfaces of which are illuminated using light projections.

April has been commissioned to produce works from small scale to life-sized for corporate clients such as Total Oil, Border Fine Arts and Morgan Stanley, amongst others.

As well as being held in private collections worldwide, her work has high profile gallery representation throughout the UK, including at major Art Fairs and shows, such as the Royal Academy, each year.
