Ian Ricketts at University of Surrey.

Brenda Blethyn commissioned the ‘Ian Ricketts Sculpture

“Christine Charlesworth is an award winning sculptor of extraordinary talent. After seeing her wonderful sculpture of Paralympian Ade Adepitan MBE, she was commissioned to make a bronze sculpture of my friend and GSA Drama Teacher of long standing, Ian Ricketts. She captured his likeness brilliantly but more importantly she captured his spirit and personality. It stands with pride at The University of Surrey. Christine is extremely versatile, personable and prompt. I’d enthusiastically recommend her to anyone. The portrait takes pride of place in the main entrance hall at GSA.”
