Phyllis Cosman (1927- ) - Biography

Phyllis Cosman began carving after her four children had grown up in 1984. Her polychrome carvings of people generate characters full of pride and calm. Her carvings are glimpses of ordinary people seemingly freeze framed in time - a nurse about to make a decision, a lady guitarist just about to bow. By 1996, arthritis had limited her output. The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia bought up everything she made the year before. To own a Cosman character is a very rare find!
