Wow! It's been a while since my last post. A very much needed a vacation and some other events I don't need to bore you with are my excuse. At the end of my vacation, last Saturday, I had to fit in some time to mingle with others at Wealthy at Charles for Eastown's Art Peers event. Every year I have a great time hanging out there. This year I sculpted "Dude"! He definitely has a double personality (a different profile on either side). He's just fun and as a unique water feature. You need to stop by and see the water flow over his faces - it works perfectly. What is really cool about this art sculpture is that it can also be placed indoors. It doesn't splash yet it still makes that wonderful water sound. Who wouldn't need that during the upcoming months when we will again be spending so much more time indoors.
Go check him out at Wealthy at Charles! Lenn would be very happy to fill you in on the details. If you would like to ask me any questions, please email me or comment below. I'll respond quickly!
My art often begins with a single photograph, a reflection of my eye—an eye that is deeply attracted to the texture, pattern, and shape found in nature. Whether it is the intricate pattern on the bark of a tree, the gentle curve of a woman’s breast, or the smooth, shiny shapes of pebbles along the shores of Lake Superior, I seek to display the wonder of creation in its purest form.
From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course. From photograph to canvas to sculpture, my hands become dirty, my fingernails caked with the mediums of art, and my heart becomes filled with joy as each piece blossoms, quite organically, into what it was meant to be.
I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it is not always obvious. But, quite possibly, the viewer will see in a new way and will feel a new appreciation for the organic elements around us.
