Jess Flood-Paddock (born 1977, London, England) is a British sculptor living and working in London.

Flood-Paddock studied at Royal College of Art (2003-5), Slade School of Fine Art (1996–2000), London and The School at the Art Institute of Chicago (1999).[1]

Flood-Paddock first came to wider attention in 2010 because of her exhibition at the Hayward Gallery Project Space, London, centred on a sculpture of a giant lobster.[2] Her work often is monumental in scale, commenting on our consumer society.[2]

She is represented by Carl Freedman Gallery, London and Grimm Gallery, Amsterdam. In June 2011, Flood-Paddock had a solo exhibition at the Carl Freedman Gallery of new sculpture called Fantastic Voyage.[3]

Flood-Paddock was named as 'Artist of the week' by the Guardian Media Group's theguardian.com website in July 2011.[2]
