Presenting stylish refined outlines Jocelyn sculpts modernist interpretive works representative of natural forms.
Jocelyn favors the use of local material and enhances the natural qualities of stone with polish and texture techniques.
While the majority of her International and Public works are monumental, she also sculpts exquisite smaller works for interior and intimate outdoor spaces.
Many of her works are evocative of her surrounding environment, nature and the effect that society and political influences have on the environment and people.
