Our Sculptors

Sheila Vollmer MRSS

My sculptural work is primarily abstract with references to the natural, spiritual and constructed world and with the aim that the work is first and foremost visually, physically and emotionally exciting, enticing the eye and relating to the body.

Canadian born, I have made London my home since 1987 after a Sculpture post graduate at St Martin’s School of Art London.

I have exhibited widely in Britain and in group exhibits in Taiwan, Eire, USA and Canada.

My sculptural work is about the material and achieving wholeness, life and meaning through a visual patterning and randomness created by systems of designs and repeated form, shape and/or angle.
