Bridget McCrum

Bridget trained as a painter at Farnham College of Art (now West Surrey College of Art). She took up sculpture in her forties after bringing up her family. She has exhibited widely and her work is in many public and private collections around the world, including Minnesota Landscape Arboretum; Rolls Royce Aero Engines; Lismore Castle, Co Cork; HSBC, Malta; Spencer Stuart, London; Charter Bank, London; Golden Door Foundation, San Diego.

Since childhood I have been excited by ancient remains, fragments of carving and standing stones in lonely landscapes. My travels have taken me to many sites from different cultures around the Mediterranean. These objects, combined with the landscape around my two homes in Devon and Gozo, have inevitably worked their way into my sculpture. The gentle curves of the hills of South Devon and the stark limestone cliffs carved by the wind and sea on Gozo have all subconsciously influenced my carving. When carving stone, I do not draw before I start. I like the element of surprise. If I knew what was going to happen on the other side it would never get made.
