Canadian stone carver and painter Cindy Presant.

Welcome.  I am a Canadian stone carver and painter living in Norfolk County, Ontario.  I carve soapstone and other soft stones using traditional stone and wood carving tools. I sketch and paint on location and in studio using pen and ink on paper, and acrylics or oils on canvas or board. My inspiration comes from the nature that is all around me, in the Long Point World Biosphere Region, from my home studio located on the Long Point Causeway on the north shore of Lake Erie, Ontario.

Long Point Art Studio is located just outside of the village of Port Rowan, on Highway 59, which becomes the Long Point Causeway. Please contact me for an appointment to see my work. It's worth planning a day trip to this area, whether your interests are art, wine, antiques, a sandy beach, or birding.

 🇨🇦  Canadian Stone Carving Festival, July 21-23, Montreal  🇨🇦

The Canadian Stone Carving Festival (CSCF) will be taking place this year in Montreal.  I can't attend in person, but have sent a carving along with a friend to be included in the Charity Auction, on Sunday, July 23.  Once the Festival begins on Friday, I will post information about my carving. If you happen to be in Montreal that weekend, you can watch carvers at work using traditional hand tools to creat beautiful works of art.
