Meet the artist... John Hoskin

In the summer of 1997, I went to the Haliburton School of the Arts, in Ontario, Canada to study sculpture and the techniques of working in soapstone with Sandy Cline. After several years of studying and experimenting with various types of stone, I felt confident to have an exhibition of my work. The first exhibition was a success and several stores and galleries expressed an interest in selling my work. You can view photos of my work on the photos page, and check out the shows page for upcoming exhibits.

Recently I have been working with other potential carvers in my area. On the photos page, you can see a mixed media sculpture carved by my son-in-law Carl. The Pike is of Brazilian Soapstone and the Sunfish is of Quebec Soapstone mounted on a grape wood base.
