Mary Ellen Farrow
Farrow discovered stone sculpting while attending a fine arts course at Sheridan College. As a member of the Mississauga Sculpture Studio for the past ten years, she also served in the position of Councillor.

She has taught stone carving at The Mississauga Sculpture Studio, Neilson Pk Creative Centre, CACY in Caledon, at The living Arts Centre, Mississauga, and in her own studio. Her works are included in many public, private and corporate collections. Farrow was elected into the SSC in 2002, where she has served as Membership Chair. Her stone practice is based at Williams Mill Studios.
I work almost exclusively in stone using broad, rounded rhythmic lines that conform to the natural character of the stone. Generally I prefer working with limestone, alabaster, marble or soapstone ranging from miniature to monumental dimensions. My goal is to produce work that is enticingly tactile, show movement and emotion – demanding visual reaction.
