MARILYN ARMITAGE is a self-taught sculptor/carver who creates artwork from her home in British Columbia, Canada.
Trained as a graphic artist, Marilyn’s love of animals and nature led her to the world of sculpture.
Her passion for sculpting inspires her to translate traditional animal forms into her own interpretation using soft flowing lines and strokes to transform the hard stone into a tactile animal that almost demands to be stroked.
Marilyn works extensively with soapstone and alabaster from around the world.
She creates pieces with a strong contemporary feel that are full of movement centered upon the structure and colour of the stone she is working with.
Her carvings reflect her love of western Canada’s wilderness and its endless array of inspirational subjects
