Ana Duncan was born in Dublin of Spanish and Irish parents. She works primarily in bronze and ceramic from her studio in Churchtown. Though the female figure has been a subject to which she constantly returns, forms the natural world have been the inspiration for a body of work recently completed by her. Her main influences are the work of Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, Botero, Picasso, FE McWilliam, among others, and the simplicity of Brancusi.
She has exhibited in numerous galleries and exhibitions in Ireland since 1992 including Royal Hibernian Academy, Royal Ulster Academy, Claremorris Open, Boyle Arts Festival, Sculpture in Context at Fernhill Gardens, Dublin Castle, and the National Botanic Gardens. Her work has also travelled to exhibitions in Belfast, Boston, Britany, London, Paris, and Scotland. She has had solo exhibitions in 2004 and 2010, and has been involved in many two and three person exhibitions in several galleries including the National Botanic Gardens in 2015.
