I went to Weymouth Stone Masonry College in the 1990’s, followed by a 3 year apprenticeship with Richard Kindersley in London and have been carving letters ever since. I have a studio in London, but since the pandemic I have based myself in Glasgow where I now carry out most of my carving work. My work is mainly headstones and memorials, garden pieces and some carving directly onto buildings.
London based Lois Anderson studied lettercarving for 2 years at Weymouth College and then worked for Richard Kindersley as an assistant in his London studio for a further 2 years. She now works to commission on headstones and memorials, as well as creating one off pieces with different forms of lettering (hand drawn letters and typefaces) and materials.
