On Tuesday April 25, 2017 I was honored to receive the Hoffman Award for sculpture at the Boca Raton Museum Art School. My sculpture "Joan of Arc" is on display in the school's gallery on Palmetto Park Road for the next month. The sculpture is made of terra cotta clay. I added a patina using acrylic paint and ink. My fellow sculpture student, Ellen Blanco, also received the Hoffman Award.
It is a thrill to receive this recognition. I am grateful to the Hoffman family and the Boca Raton Museum Art School for selecting me for this award. I also want to thank my sculpture teacher, Barbara Brown, for inspiring me.
You can see one of my mixed-media pieces in the May/June 2017 issue of Cloth Paper Scissors. My artwork was selected as a finalist in the Welcome Spring with Mixed-Media Flowers reader challenge. It's exciting for me to see my art in a magazine I've read for many years. Here's the magazine cover:
And here's page 91 with my artwork. I had a lot of fun creating this piece with collage, acrylic paint, Stabilo All pencil, rubber stamps and ink. I especially like the black and white collage paper that came from a French menu.
