Creating from stone
Welcome to Long Point Art Studio
Welcome. My name is Cindy Presant. I'm a self-taught soapstone carver based in Norfolk County, Ontario. My home studio/gallery is at the top end of the Long Point Causeway, just outside of the pretty fishing village of Port Rowan. I am inspired by the rich biodiversity of the UNESCO Long Point Biosphere Reserve, a world-renowned migratory pathway fro birds, but also a wonderful area for herptiles, including turtles, snakes, frogs, and salamanders.
I have just received the Long Point Toad Stone that I ordered from Long Point Art Studio. The carving is such a beautiful work of art and the information pamphlet about the carving is so informative. I purchased this carving as a gift and now that I have held the tiny toad in my hand I have second thoughts about giving it away. It is almost as if once you hold it the carving belongs to you. I will definitely be ordering more carvings. The workmanship is outstanding.
Turtles and ducks and snakes and owls and everything....
With Midland Painted Turtles hatching from nests dug in my lawn, owls hooting through the backyard wetlands at night, frogs singing in the ponds, and ducks, swans, and Sandhill Cranes all around, I don't have to go far for inspiration. Read about my thoughts on nature, art, and creativity.
