About Marko Humphrey-Lahti

Marko originally studied Business Law and pursued a successful career in Marketing and Public Relations with some of Europe`s leading businesses. Whilst Head of PR and Marketing Communications at Orange plc, he personally developed many artistic initiatives including the Orange Prize for Fiction.

Predominantly self-taught, Marko learnt his traditional stone carving techniques on the Mediterranean island of Gozo. Captivated by the islands` rich Neolithic history he was spurred on to study sculpting techniques at the University of Hertfordshire.

Working in a broad range of natural stones, Marko uses the solidity of his materials to map out and explore the realm of emotional experiences and responses. The result is sculpture which moves comfortably between figurative and abstract, bridging the gap between the physical and emotional, in an aesthetically enticing style. He also produces limited edition sculptures from the originals in Foundry Bronze, Aluminium, and composite metal and stone resins.

He is a member of Herts Visual Arts and the Cambridge Drawing Society. He works from his studio in North Hertfordshire.
