Born in London in 1962, Jeremy Schrecker studied for a year at the Wimbledon School of Art (London) in the early 1980s, continuing his training at the Winchester School of Art, where he gained a BA Honours Degree in Fine Art. He then undertook postgraduate studies in sculpture at the Royal College of Art (London), resulting in the award of an MA (RCA) in 1988.
At the age of twenty-seven he began his professional life as a sculptor with a large commission at Hammersmith Hospital, London. Jeremy’s following year was spent working in the Antipodes where he gained experience in creating forms in forged steel. On his return to England he worked for two years as a studio-based artist in Shropshire schools and then studied at the University of Huddersfield to gain a Post Graduate Certificate in Education.
In 1996 Jeremy established his workshop in Shropshire where he has continued to hone his metalworking skills and now undertakes a large variety of commissions. As a studio-based artist he is continually developing ideas and producing high quality sculpture for gallery sale. He also works as a freelance teacher and runs workshops by request in various aspects of sculptural art.
Jeremy’s sculpture has been sold widely via one-man exhibitions and group shows. He has exhibited with leading contemporary art galleries such as Cadogan Contemporary (London), Beaux Arts (Bath) and Number 9 The Gallery (Birmingham) and regularly shows in St Ives.
