Alison Erickson

Alison Erickson has lived and worked at The Mill Studio in Waikari, North Canterbury since 1998. She sculpts and casts bronze on the premises, with her partner, Sam Mahon.

Erickson has no formal art training other than serving the apprenticeship of casting a two-tonne bronze, The Southern Man, with Sam Mahon.

Since then Erickson has exhibited each year around New Zealand and have three public sculptures: Looking for something that will last, which stands on a rocky outcrop above Diamond Harbour Wharf, The winds of change, outside the Rangiora library and All the worlds a stage, at the Rangiora town hall.

Her work is kept in private collections in NZ and in Australia, the UK and the USA.
