Well today Google celebrates the unique Barbara Hepworth and for some reason the pillar of our Art society Waldemar @JANUSZCZAK is strangely silent whilst rightly trumpeting female surrealists; perhaps its because she didn’t go to Oxbridge?

I love that Google Doodle is celebratory of Dame Barbara Hepworth. A british artist from Wakefield, I remember my Hepworth obsession in college and wanting to pursue sculpting. Alas, I haven’t the talent for it.

The Google Doodle today highlights Barbara Hepworth, who seems to have distilled a core creative fundamental of mine in a very succinct quote:

“I found one had to do some work every day, even at midnight, because either you’re professional or you’re not.”

Glad to see Barbara Hepworth as today’s featured person on Google!

I draw a lot of inspiration from her work, especially her sculptures with holes and internal structure!
