Justine Smith

Justine Smith was initially known for her unique renditions of dogs and animals. Expert at capturing the poise and personality of her subjects, Smith was famed in particular for her dog sculptures collaged in beano comics. More recently, Smith has used genuine currency such as US dollars and sterling to create works with humour as well as political comment.
