    Nigel Boonham is best known as a figurative sculptor. Boonham received his training from the sculptor Oscar Nemon (1906-1985), to whom he was an assistant. This introduced him to large-scale portrait sculpting, with Nemon being famed for his depictions of Freud, Margaret Thatcher, and Winston Churchill. An introduction to the poet and artist Willam Blake had an influencing effect on Boonham, for Blake’s use of symbolism and his free imagination.

    Since the late 1970s he has worked steadily on commissions, which have included Sir Neville Cardus; John McEnroe; Lord Runcie, Archbishop of Canterbury; and Diana, Princess of Wales. Many of his public monuments can be found across the UK, Australia, France, and the USA. In 2004 Boonham was elected president of the Society of Portrait Sculptors, and each year he exhibits at their Annual Exhibition in Central London.
