Ana Duncan was born in Dublin. She works primarily in bronze and ceramic from her studio in Churchtown, Dublin. The female figure has constantly been the subject and inspiration for her work. Amongst her influences are the abstraction of Henry Moore, the voluminous figures of Fernando Botero, Barbara Hepworth’s modernist work, the simplicity of Brancusi and the sculptures of Juan Muñoz among others.


Duncan has recently completed a large-scale stainless steel public sculpture in Nashua, New Hampshire, USA and two large scale bronze public commissions in Jiangsu, China. Other public commissions include a life size Mother and Child for Tallaght Hospital, Dublin. 


Duncan has exhibited in numerous galleries and exhibitions in Ireland since 1992. Her work has also travelled to exhibitions in Boston, Britany, London, Paris and Scotland. Duncan's work is represented in the collections of the Office of Public Works; Department of Finance and Personnel, Northern Ireland; Morrison Hotel, Dublin and many private collections in Ireland, US, UK, Sweden, Belgium, Switzerland, Spain & Portugal.
