grace buildings, churches, boardrooms and private homes
and have been bought by collectors in South Africa the
UK and Europe, particularly Germany and Switzerland,
and the USA.
Maureen's prevailing love is African Hardwood, on which
she can create a magnificent sculpture with anything
from a small chisel to a chainsaw!
Maureen has been able to pass on her love of sculpture
and its techniques by teaching at various schools and
colleges over four decades.
Maureen sculpts for the sheer love of it because the
hardwood she has selected demands to be carved into
a certain form. She also works on a commission basis
and often accepts commissions for sculptures in wood
and bronze as well as portrait busts.
Maureen was born in South Africa but
now lives in Surrey, England. Not wanting to leave
Africa behind,she shipped 61 logs of different coloured
African indigenous hardwood (all fumigated and stamped,
according to the law). From these, Maureen created
many sculpture works, some of which were displayed
at an exhibition 2005 in Wales, appropriately named
'A Sculptor's Journey'.
