Gudrun Nielsen born in Reykjavík graduated as a sculptor from the The Icelandic College of Art and Crafts in 1989 and studied further at Chelsea College of Art and Design from 1990-1992. She took an MA in Art in Architecture from University of East London from 1994-1995. Gudrun has participated in around 65 exhibitions, the majority of which were in England but also in other countries in Europe. She is an elected Fellow of the Royal British Society of Sculptors and has been nominated and won numerous 1st. prize awards, including an international sculpture competition.

In 1998 she was invited by the RBS to represent England overseas. Gudrun aligns herself with the kind of three-dimensional art which might be called a modernist-based formalism with minimalist or constructivist overtones. The Japan factor should be seen in the context of the second aspect of Gudrun´s style. Her most well-known work is Changes in Greenham Business Park, the former Royal Air Force World War Two airbase in Berkshire. Gudrun’s sculptures can be found in public and private places most of which are located in England.
