About Bobbie Fennick

Bobbie Fennick is a stonemason and carver with a background in Fine Art. Her experience ranges from carvings and memorials to large public commissions. Having obtained a Fine Arts Diploma from the school of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston Massachusetts in 1983, she relocated first to Berlin and, in 1989, to the UK. She worked on both sculpture and mural projects many of which she managed in the UK, Bahrain and Qatar. 1997 brought a focus on stone, and she completed her NVQ 3 and City and Guilds Diploma in Advanced Stonemasonry in 2001. Since then she has put her hand to carving and masonry projects of every sort including large restoration projects including St. Paul`s Cathedral, the Palaces of Westminster and the Brighton Royal Pavilion to carving, letter cutting and gilding jobs including Kensington Palace, the Putney War Memorial and a commemorative plaque for Sir David Jack. In June of this year she completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Historic Stone Carving at the City and Guilds of London Art School. Bobbie has enjoyed a number of collaborative projects recently. In 2010, she completed work on the Brereton Bear, a major carving collaboration with Nina Bilbey, to assist her in roughing out the bear and carving the heraldic shield for the 2M high sculpture for Brereton Hall in Cheshire. In 2012 she secured a public commission for four large relief carvings on naturally riven Welsh slate monoliths, for the Haggerston West and Kingsland housing redevelopment project in Hackney. The project involved the sourcing, liaising, design and carving of the monoliths and it has been an opportunity to work closely with the residents of the estate to achieve designs from local architectural features that have a particular importance to them. The first two monoliths were installed in July, 2014. In addition to completing the remaining monolith carvings for the Hackney project, Bobbie is presently working on a large college entry carving and the preliminary work for a 7ft clay model for a carving of Cannon Dean Bell by Nina Bilbey for Canterbury Cathedral.
