I am an artist, a qualified cathedral stone mason and a former student of the European Lettering Institute in Brugge. My sculptural background, my love of words and my belief in ‘truth to material’ has led me to pursue work with letters, language and inscriptional carving. Writing, drawing and carving by hand are the foremost elements of my creative life.
As well as a talented stone carver and letter cutter, Beatrice Searle is the author of Stone Will Answer, a beautiful memoir, travelogue and meditation on stone. She is based in South West Perthshire, Scotland.
