Marguerite Derricourt

Marguerite Derricourt’s sculpture traverses numerous disciplines and materials. As a visual artist, Derricourt draws her inspiration from nature. Her conceptual interests lie in expressing personal concerns of natural world; specifically focusing on life cycles of moths and butterflies, animals, birds and trees. While developing ideas, Derricourt experiments in a variety of materials such as steel, wire, cast bronze, clay, mixed media and cast paper.

I believe that sculpture belongs as much in the public domain as it does in private ownership and plays an important and vital role in our towns and cities.
