Judy Greaves working in sculpture, mostly stone carving

I am a sculptor working mainly in carved stone.

I did a BA in Fine art at NEWI, Wrexham, initially expecting to be a painter having had no experience of scupture. However 3D work captured my imagination and has now become the focus of my work.

My starting point is natural form, often the human body, but my work is not strictly representational, and the finished piece is often simplified. Once I start carving the stone itself dictates how the work progresses. I work in different types of stone, each lending its characteristics to my creativity.
