Murray Sheppard

  • Biography

    Following his retirement, Cromwell based sculptor Murray Sheppard, decided to return to his boyhood interest of working in wood. He enjoys hand-carving and sculpting and has completed a number of successful commissions.
    FROm an early age having a father who owned his own Design Furniture/ Cabinet making business I was fortunate to spend hours having fun in his workshop. However when leaving school the call of the outdoors saw my involvement in the Stock and Station industry.
    On retirement in 2003 it seemed natural for me to return to my boyhood interest in wood. By coincidence during my first winter the wood lathe broke down. While it was being repaired I tried my hand at sculpting/carving and enjoyed it so much I have continued that direction with my art. Although I have completed a number of commissions I prefer to design and complete work of my own imagination.
