A bit about Rhyl:

Rhyl was appointed a Member in the General Division of the Order of Australia in 2006 for her service to the Visual Arts following her award of an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Philosophy by the University of Queensland in 2001 for her outstanding contribution to the University and to the Visual Arts in Queensland.

Born in Brisbane, Queensland in 1940, Rhyl Hinwood’s professional career as a sculptor began in 1976 at the University of Queensland where hundreds of her carvings in the Great Court are now listed on the Registers of the National Estate and Queensland Heritage.
One of her most prestigious commission was the production of the ceramic Australian Coat of Arms for the House of Representatives Chamber in Parliament House, Canberra in 1988.
With over fifty years experience, Rhyl has worked almost exclusively on the design and production of over seven hundred commissioned public artworks for institutions, the churches, corporations, organisations, federal, state and local governments as well as for private clients.

Undaunted by large projects, Rhyl recently designed and carved an historic Helidon freestone and bronze frieze eleven metres long for the Monte Sant’Angelo Mercy College in North Sydney and a three and a half metre high bronze statue of St Magnus, the Patron Saint of the Anglican Church Grammar School (Churchie) in Brisbane.
Following on site carving in the Benefactors Gallery of St John’s Anglican Cathedral in Brisbane, Rhyl has designed and carved thirteen monumental statues for the West End to be installed in early 2019.
At present Rhyl is the Patron of Sculptors Queensland.
