Fly Freeman is a British sculptor resident in Uxbridge, in Ontario since 2001, when she immigrated to Canada from Europe. She arrived as a stone carver, but has since expanded her sculptural practice to include many other materials – especially ones you can work on indoors in the winter.

Her practice involves working with wood, paper, glass and whichever other materials are needed to make sculptures that are now more constructions than carvings.

The unseen physical forces of this world inspire her – gravity and friction, balance and tension. Summer thermals in the air; winter energy banked under dormant forms.
