Owned and directed by Christine Baxter, Artstone takes inspiration from the human form and objects in nature.
Christine has been a full-time professional sculptor since graduating from Camberwell School of Art in the 80's. As a sculptor, she works predominantly in clay but also directly into plaster and wax. She then casts her work into stone.
Christine is classically trained having studied with Epstein's assistant, Mike Gillespie. She is now based in her own purpose built studio at Court Robert Arts in Monmouthshire.
'Many of my family members have been artists. There have been wrought iron gate makers, dress designers, wood carvers, sculptors, landscape designers, photographers and cooks. Making things is in my genes, but I have also benefited from growing up in an art nurturing environment. My earliest memories are of drawing and sculpting with my Grandfather.'- Christine Baxter, 2018.
