About Ann Coomber

 
 
  • Biography

    Ann Coomber is a stone sculptor living and working in the beautiful Scottish Highlands. In the main body of her work, Ann creates curvaceous domestic-scale abstract sculptures that embody memories and emotions. However, as a result of participating in a joint multi-genre residency at the world-famous Inverewe Garden during 2019, she has been inspired to explore the botanical form too. "It was a wonderful experience to be able to stay within the garden and we often had it all to ourselves, which was a magical, immersive experience," she says. "Since then, I’ve found myself far more attentive and responsive to the flora around me." Ann is excited by the contradiction between solid stone and ephemeral botanical forms and enjoys the challenge of carving her small, but exquisite, pieces. While her larger abstract work is well planned, each of her stylised botanical sculptures is directly carved - she decides what she thinks lies within the rough raw stone, then goes with the flow, trusting her creative instincts and carving skills to find and develop the idea. She never knows quite what the sculpture will eventually look like, making each sculpture unique. Ann’s work has been exhibited widely. In 2017 her abstract work was selected for Sculpt at Kew, a major contemporary sculpture event at Kew Gardens, London.
