Liz Grundy is a sculptor living and working in Barnsley, Yorkshire, U.K. where she has a workshop. There is a tradition in Yorkshire of stone carving including such luminaries as Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth.
After completing a City and Guilds course in stone carving in 2005, she went on to attend a variety of courses working with numerous sculptors to enhance her skills.
Liz has travelled widely and her sculpture is influenced by the various places throughout the world that she has visited. For more details please take a look at her travel page.
An important development for her work was discovering African sculpture on show at a Garden Festival at Tatton Park, Manchester, U.K. The impact of African art inspired her so much that she travelled to East Africa in 2011, where she was fortunate enough to carve alongside a team of Shona sculptors. Liz now imports stone from Africa.
She donated an Elephant sculpture which was auctioned at a Gala Dinner in September 2012, raising funds for the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. See our news page for more details of the event.
Among present work Liz is carving Indian Elephants as an interesting contrast to her earlier African Elephant sculptures.
Liz uses a variety of stone including Ancaster, Cadeby and Portland Limestone from the U.K. along with Serpentine stone from Africa which includes Opal and Cobalt, from these stones she produce her high quality sculpture.
All her work is carved by hand and each piece is unique. Liz undertakes bespoke commissions in order that each client’s particular requirements are met.
