His one of a kind sculptures reflect his Crucian heritage and the mystery of the Caribbean Sea. Junie Bomba Allick, a native of St. Croix, has immortalized the marine environment and the region’s conch shell by combining its natural beauty with his inspired artistry.
Allick, a well-known member of the St. Croix community and an accomplished artisan, musician and entrepreneur, works with shell as another sculptor may use marble or stone. He envisions the incredible multi dimensional images, cutting and smoothing surfaces to bring new shapes to life.
He has gained worldwide acclaim over the past decade for his Intricate pink porcelain-like patina designs with natural curves, spirals, and distinctive cuts which are both modern and timeless.
Proud and passionate about his Crucian heritage and the island's natural resources, Allick wants to give back to others and pass on his talents to future generations and has given workshops to young people on the conch shell.
