Stephanie Quayle’s earthy, clay sculptures - often life size in their rendering – reflect upon the relationship of humans to the animal world.

In 2018 she was commissioned by Turner Contemporary, Margate, for their Animals & Us exhibition and in the same year Quayle was also commissioned by the Sidney Cooper Gallery, Canterbury, to celebrate the gallery’s 150th anniversary. In 2017 Quayle’s solo show Urban Jungle was exhibited at Gallery 38, Tokyo, with work also included in Wild: Untamed Mind at the city’s 21_21 Design Site Museum. In 2016, Quayle’s work was exhibited in the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition and in a group show of female artists entitled Champagne Life at Saatchi Gallery. In 2015, Jenga (comprising 40 clay monkeys) was commissioned by Artwise for the Azerbaijan Pavilion Vita Vitale, shown as part of the 56th International Art Exhibition - la Biennale di Venezia, and was subsequently exhibited at Fitzrovia Chapel, London.
