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.
