Shirley Sheppard


"Many of my sculptures bear the marks of the wood fires they have been subjected to.They have survived the flames they were created in and show the natural and spontaneous scars associated with their making. Many have been fired several times creating layers of experience: Different clays are combined. Drawings and galzes used. Each one is unique having its own accidental character that can never be caught in bronze, stone or wood."

My work is at blandscliff gallery and studio, 9 Blands Cliff, Scarborough UK and other selected galleries

The Black hole of Brexit..

As an artist with many friends in all areas of the arts, who work and exhibit throughout Europe I am so saddened by leaving the EU and the fumbling of Whitehall.

Peace cooperation and open easy exchanging with each other are for me the essence of our artistic lives.
