Into the Sweet Night, alabaster, 26 x 16.5 x 40.5cm (incl. plinth)

Ann is fascinated by the intimate relationship between indigenous people and the natural world. For them, every drawing and artefact embodies complex narratives and memories that record and direct their movement through life, landscape and time. "Taking biological forms as my starting point, I develop them into curvaceous, domestic scale, abstract sculptures digging deep into my personal memories, imbuing them with meaning, recording my own journey," she explains. "I am driven by a desire to make the stone 'move', developing sculptures that flow like water and wind. The beauty and wild weather of the Scottish highlands constantly inspire me. When the wind roars around the carving shed, and rain batters the roof, I feel close to the elements." Ann's work has been exhibited widely. In 2017 her work was selected for Sculpt at Kew, a major contemporary sculpture event at Kew Gardens, London. She is participating part-time in a multi-genre artist residency at National Trust for Scotland Inverewe Garden, from 2019 to mid 2021.
