artworks by  Rowena Beaty

Rowena Beaty has been carving in stone for over 20 years, and finds inspiration in its age and beauty. For her, working with stone invokes a physical connection with deep time. She works with a variety of types of stone, mainly limestone, marble and polyphant, and has a particular affinity to Lincoln limestone which is rich in fossils. All her work is crafted using traditional hand tools.

Rowena's work explores the cycles and rhythms of nature through the human form.  Early Greek and

Romanesque sculpture, in its simplicity and vitality, has been an important influence.
She returned to her native Cumbria in 2013 to live on the Solway estuary where she finds inspiration in the open skies and energy of the tides.
