Simon Carman lives and works in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, predominantly working in stone. As well as producing his own work, Carman is nationally recognised for his carving skills and casting skills and is often called upon to fabricate work for some of the country’s most recognised artists. Simon grew up in Dublin and has worked as an artist professionally all his life, following in the footsteps of his mother, the recognised sculptor Cathy Carman. He attended Glasgow School Of Art studying for a BA Hons in Sculpture following a foundation in Art at NCAD. He has worked in professional foundries such as Callow Bronze Foundry in County Mayo as well as setting up foundries and working for many years with the Leitrim Sculpture Centre. Simon was recently commissioned by Tyrone Guthrie Centre to make a stone commemoration for the late director of the center, Bernard Laughlin. The horse is one of Simon's obsessions; he not only paints, draws and sculpts horses in both bronze and stone, Simon owns and care for his very own horses on a daily basses. He has exhibited both nationally and internationally and his work is held in a number of private collections.
