Back to Blogging

March?  Can’t believe that is last time I blogged.  I know that is no way to develop a loyal following.

Much has happened since then.  I’ll start by posting photo’s of two pieces that were in an exhibit at the University of Michigan Duderstadt Gallery in May. They are part of a travelling exhibit that will open at the River’s Edge Gallery in September 2010.

About Babs

I'm a narrative sculptor navigating her way through the ever-changing currents in what feels like an art ocean. Whether appreciating the calm rhythm of calls for art and exhibiting, or waiting to catch a big wave of inspiration to take me to the top. I just love being in the water. Formerly a pickle packer, theater major, crisis counselor and occupational therapist with a BA in Communications and a BS in Occupational Therapy, only to discover I've always been an artist. My work grows from a strong connection to people and a passion for discovering the beauty in ordinary things. I sculpt figuratively in clay, utilizing the female form and women’s themes. Frequently my inspiration is drawn from childhood memories and my own short poems. Like each of us as humans every work is uniquely influenced by the past and present and has a narrative.

  3. Thanks Christina. It’s made from Lake Michigan driftwood with a face I sculpted in Clay. It’s part of a travelling exhibit that will be in Hancock, Michigan at Finlandia University next month.
