Hello, my name is Matthew Stoddart and I am the Lead Ice Artist at Lexington Ice Sculptures. As a young child I was always intrigued with watching my father (Michael) carve ice and attend ice competitions with him. When I was 12 years old, my parents trusted me with a chainsaw and power tools, a year later, I was competing in my first ever ice competition …and won! I was hooked! I love what I do and my passion for creating and designing sculptures for our clients has continued to evolve ever since I joined full time with my parents business, Seasons Catering & Lexington Ice Sculptures. So, if you have a vision or dream, let me help you make it a reality in ICE! Let’s WOW everyone.
