Canadian Sculptures' Society

Mary Ellen Farrow

Brief Biography
I was born in Mount Forest, Ontario and am currently residing in Brampton, Ontario. I have taken sculpture courses at Sheridan College, Haliburton School of Fine Arts and Ontario College of Art and Design. I have been a member of the Mississauga Sculpture Studio for the past ten years and now hold a position of Councilor. For the past six years I have been teaching sculpture and stone carving at The Mississauga Sculpture Studio, Neilson Park Creative Centre in Etobicoke, CACY in Caledon and for three years at The Living Arts Centre in Mississauga.

Artist Statement
I work almost exclusively in stone using broad, rounded, rhythmic lines that conform to the natural character of the stones. My goal is to produce work that is tactile, shows movement and emotion, but demands reaction.
