A woman who has made a career from bringing blood and gore and realistic prosthetic masks to television screens is preparing to bring her artwork to the Waveney Valley.

For over 35 years sculptor Pauline Fowler had built a reputation in the world of film and television for making replica corpses and body parts, such as in the BBC show Silent Witness, and masks, such as for cavemen.

This resulted in her becoming widely known in the industry as "The dead body lady".

But now Ms Fowler is bringing her latest creative venture to Bungay after retiring as a director and main sculptor of her prosthetics and animatronics company to concentrate on her fine art work.

She will be exhibiting at The Bell Gallery in Bungay from Tuesday, October 31 to Saturday, November 25 to showcase her new oil paintings, which reflect her passion for birds and animals and her love of Italian and Renaissance art.

Ms Fowler said: "I want to use all of the skills I have developed over the many years sculpting, observing and translating what I saw into visuals that people can relate to with a subject I love."

In addition to her oil paintings, which are influenced by early explorer-based animal and bird illustrations, Ms Fowler will also have some of her bronze sculptures on display as well as her fine art photographic prints of birdlife.

Ms Fowler had provided prosthetics and silicone autopsy bodies for Silent Witness, and has been involved in many other programmes such as Walking with Cavemen, Unforgotten, Outlander, and The Crown, and many films, including Kick Ass and The Reader, from her base at Shepperton Film Studios.

A preview evening with an opportunity to meet Mrs Fowler and some of the other exhibiting artists is on Wednesday, November 1 from 5pm to 8pm at the gallery.

Bell Gallery is an artist-led gallery situated at 40 Earsham St, Bungay.
