Biography   Inez Marshall


Born in Burr Oak, May 18, 1907 and died in Portis, Kansas in October 1984, Inez Marshall was a sculptor in limestone.   She started carving Kansas limestone in the late 1930s while recuperating from a broken back and continued carving while working as an auto mechanic, truck driver, and traveling evangelist.

Marshall's sculptures include animals, 143 politicians, scenes from small town life, a one-fifth size Model T Ford, and the wheel and battery of an uncompleted full-size Harley Davidson motorcycle.  For 51 years, this self-taught artist carved and painted native Kansas limestone into one-of-a-kind sculptures.
