Sheila Vollmer was born in Canada and made London her home in 1987 after a post graduate in Sculpture at St Martin's School of Art. In Canada she completed a BA in Visual Art at the University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, 1985. Her sculptural work is primarily with geometric shapes in the abstract. Her work brings references to the architectural, spiritual, and constructed world. The materials and processes that she works with have never stayed the same. She switches between many different materials but is currently with Steel and Casting. “Architecture is also an influence particularly for the poetry and symbolism of spaces and the shared human experience our physical and emotional selves have to the spaces around us. My aim is to stay true to the material I am working with, while creating an image with a breath and meaning of its own.”
