Melanie Wilks Sculptor

Melanie Wilks Sculptor Melanie Wilks Sculptor

I am a sculptor who specialises in the carving of stone. Using hand held tools, I carve directly in stone, by which means I am involved in the production of my sculpture from initial design to the finished product. I produce drawings for my sculpture, I refer to these whilst carving, however the drawings are a guide, rather than a definitive model for my sculpture.
As well as creating work for my own artistic self expression, I work to commission and over a career that spans more than 25 years. I have produced many publicly sited sculptures. My sculpture can be seen in towns, parks and public spaces in and around Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire.
