Stan Runyanga

Stanley Runyanga, born on 9 June 1956 in Rusape, Zimbabwe. He was the youngest child of a family of 9 children. Whilst at school, he showed a natural gift for art and modelling plasticine, so his teachers encouraged this talent.
He chooses to work with Verdite stone. At first he found it very difficult to carve the Verdite as it is a very hard stone to carve, but he overcame this problem successfully, and his carvings are now becoming well known. His speciality is Giraffes.
