Inspired by coastlines and the beautiful countryside that surrounds her, Lilly became an avid collector of pebbles and flints, feathers and gnarled wood, finding a life force within them that fascinated and excited her.
Lilly worked in a range of sculptural mediums from cement fondue, clay and wire to recycled metals, natural windfalls and stones that helped harness her instinctive ability to create sculptural forms.
In 2010, Lilly had the opportunity to work with an established sculptor who guided and mentored her in the art of carving for 3 years. This time gave Lilly the knowledge and freedom to recreate smaller Marquette’s as well as objects into large scale sculptural forms. The large carved sculptural forms that Lilly creates now are the beginning of the process leading to cast resin/bronze sculptures.
