Elise Muller’s granite sculpture "Attunement" won the 2018/9 Canadian Sculpture Competition at Kingsbrae Garden in St. Andrews, New Brunswick. Elise has been sculpting stone since 2001 when she took her first of many courses at Haliburton School of Art + Design. Elise carves stylized figures in a variety of stone like limestone, granite, and marble. She enjoys the whole process of stone sculpting from picking the stone to chiseling, to seeing the figures emerge, to filing, to polishing.
In 2016 Elise carved the limestone sculpture of a family that is in front of the Dorset Community Health Hub. Three of her sculptures have been on public display in Elora and Fergus as part of the Elora Sculpture Project from 2016-2018. Elise is very excited to be part of the Haliburton Downtown Sculpture Exhibition in 2019 with her limestone “Dancers”. She also teaches stone carving and is a part time faculty member of HSAD.
Elise lives near Dorset and shares Stone Tree Studio with her partner, furniture maker Cirvan Hamilton.
