Denise de Cordova is a sculptor based in London. She studied at Brighton Polytechnic and the Royal College of Art, where she received her M.A. in 1983. After graduating, she spent a year at the British School at Rome, Italy as a Rome Scholar, where her interest in mythic narratives originated. She is a Henry Moore Foundation Fellow, a Stanley Picker Fellow, and in 2006 she was made a Fellow of the Royal College of Art, where she now teaches.

Describing herself as a “kind of Victorian Magic Realist,“ her work takes the form of tableaux that use specific imagery as a means of exploring historical tropes an that center on ideas of nature, identity, myth and folklore. De Cordova also shows under the name Amy Bird to produce specific ceramic works based on the idea of collection. Recent exhibitions include Lies and Camouflage at the London Art Fair in (2015), Grand Magasin Deux at the French Riviera in London (2015), Summer exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London (2015), WomanHouse at StudioRCA at Riverlight (2015), and Building, Dwelling, Thinking at Eagle Gallery in London (2015). In 2014 she was ceramicist-in-residence at Standpoint Gallery in London and printer-in-residence for Garage Editions at Worcester University. De Cordova is represented by The Eagle Gallery.
