  2. 2. Lorne McKean, FRBS, RSA Gifted from an early age, Lorne McKean was destined to become a sculptor. By the age of 6 she was already carving anything in sight, salt blocks, butter and cheese. Lorne began studying seriously at the age of 10 when her work attracted the attention of Prince Serge Yourievitch a contemporary and friend of Rodin and under his guidance and encouragement she began modeling at his studio. She was a student at the Royal Academy Schools and won the Leverhume Scholarship, the Silver medal for sculpture combined with architecture, and the Feodora Gleichen Scholarship. Two sculptures were accepted by the Royal Academy when she was only 20. She was elected a Member of the Society of Portrait Sculptors in 1969 and a Fellow of the Royal Society of British Sculptors in 1972. “Her exhibitions have been an outstanding success with the public and critics alike and her work has gone to collections all over the world” Whenever possible Lorne likes to work from life as she finds direct contact with her subject inspires, enlivens and enlightens her work. The search for the essence of a subject has always attracted and fascinated her. Lorne McKean is married to sculptor Edwin Russell who she met while studying at the Royal Academy Schools and they have two children, Rebecca a Veterinary surgeon and Tanya founder and principal of The Art Academy, London Waterloo. Artists statement I vividly remember aged 7 being given a bag of clay and at that moment knowing that out of that simple clay I could make anything, people, animals, buildings, stars, farms, zoos, there were endless possibilities and I played for hours. My life making sculpture still feels like that first moment of playing as a child. I meet and work with many fascinating people from all walks of life and enjoy the challenge of pushing the boundaries of what is possible both artistically, as in The Horsham Heritage Sundial and technically as in the 28 ft Leeds Birds "Flight". I love becoming totally absorbed in the qualities, action and essence of my subject through hours of study. This can take many forms, like when Herbert the Trout lived in the bath for 6 months or through just an alert,instant of really seeing. I met my husband Edwin Russell while we were both studying sculpture at the Royal Academy Schools and since then we have sometimes worked together, sometimes separately but have always shared the same love of art, philosophy and meditation and have all the same aspirations .
