WELCOME TO SLATE STONE ART
THE HOME OF MODERN DAY PETROGLYPHS AND PICTOGRAPHS,
CANADIAN POETRY AND PHOTOGRAPHY
Thank you for visiting Slate Stone Art’s new (dot net) website created with the popular WordPress system and placed on the web on September 16, 2014.
Slate Stone Art is truly “Canadian” specific to British Columbia’s beautiful Columbia Valley, created by myself, Elaine Sell Prefontaine, on local Purcell Mountain Slate Stone.
Slate Stone Art is a timeless medium. These Engravings and Relief Sculptures on slate stone will endure for centuries. Purcell Mountain Slate Stone was formed approximately 1,500 million years ago in the pre-Cambrian age.
Since I work with each piece of “hand picked” slate stone to individually bring out that “special creature” waiting there, each creation is uniquely “one-of-a-kind”. Pieces have now traveled to their new homes in ten countries.
BIG HORN SHEEP, EAGLES, ELK, MOOSE and MOUNTAIN LIONS have “Nature Notes” sections presenting my own personal experiences, encounters and research.
Bears, Big Horn Sheep, Bison and Great Blue Herons have special sections on their TOTEMS, SIGNS and LORE.
The magnificent Columbia Valley inspires me to create a wide variety of subjects including my favorite mythological friend “KOKOPELLI“, – The Bringer of Joy and Inspiration” as well as my interpretive creations of his female counterpart Kokopelli Mana, endearingly called “KOKOMANA“.
The “POETRY Corner”, “Poetry of Love” and “Prairie Days Poetry” share my own work and “Montana Sings” presents Cowboy Songs & Poetry by both my late Father and Brother.
Being a long time shutter-bug l love capturing natures wonders on Canon and sharing these images on my PHOTOGRAPHY Galleries of British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan.
I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoyed creating it!
Thank you for visiting my on-line studio which is a continuous work in progress
