Inspired by nature and informed by years of experience working in a variety of mediums and settings, Jonquil’s one-of-a-kind pieces are visually striking, serene, and holistically integrated into their surroundings.

Her work combines traditional sculptural techniques of carving, molding and casting with construction materials such as concrete, metal, resins and epoxies. For Jonquil sculpture is the most creative form of expression~there is no limit to the imagination. Sculptures are created in any shape and size for the garden, home or public place!
