Over several months, local life casting artist Nicole Le Cornu of Love Casting has collaborated with an incredible collective of Islanders living with breast cancer. Working with these amazing women, Nicole has captured each individual’s unparalleled journey and courage in the creation of their body cast. Each keepsake has been handcrafted and some finished as metallic sculptures whereas others have been meticulously hand-painted and illustrated with the support of artists Emma Burns-Di Lauro and Jamie O’Neil.
These are not just casts; they are canvases of life and testament to resilience – they capture strength, struggle, and spirit. Breast cancer isn’t defined by a singular narrative. Each of these women faced their diagnosis at different moments, underwent varied treatments, and battled diverse stages of this disease. Their collective message? Early detection is paramount. The simple act of Touch, Look, Check (TLC) can be the pivotal factor in one’s fight against breast cancer. TLC isn’t just a routine; it’s a life-saving mantra.
As you explore this gallery, be inspired by the courage of those featured and let their stories be a resonating reminder: TLC saves lives. Let’s celebrate their bravery, amplify their message, and champion the importance of regular checks.
Together, we can make a difference.

Nicole Le Cornu – Love Casting
Nicole started her life casting journey in 2017 when she first learned the art of 3D casting. Since then, she has created many personal and unique keepsakes for families. She continues to grow and has recently undertaken further training to refine her skills, adding body casting to her portfolio.
Love Casting specialises in creating beautiful life castings and personalised jewellery. Each keepsake is unique – little hands, tiny toes, precious paws, family moments and so much more. Capture a memory to last forever and create something truly special.
“Having the opportunity to be creative, unveiling a cast from its mould for the first time and sharing the result with the family is exciting and rewarding. I get to create something new, each and every time. No two keepsakes are the same and I love being able to capture a special memory.”
