Figurative Sculpture--Portraits & Animals
ABOUT THE ARTIST---SUE McNIEL JACOBSEN
My professional training in graphic design at Art Center School in Los Angeles served me well when first I turned my creative skills to a career in easel painting. And I was able to move with ease and enthusiasm when not long ago sculpture ‘found me’, and I learned to see with new eyes—in 3 dimensions now!
My sculptures are figurative, of people or animals, and I seem to have special ability to capture the likeness and personality of my subjects.
My “artist’s eye” seeks both the extra-ordinary and the ordinarily-overlooked moments in nature, and presents them in a way that allows the viewer to see what I’ve seen—and loved enough to want to share it.
I hope it will also provoke you to look again, to want to feel, to touch it, to go there—for it comes from the place truly gifted artists visit often—the creative core.
I continue to seek out other professional painters and sculptors whose work I admire, with whom to study, in workshops in the U.S. and Canada, in France and Mexico as well (with several assists from the ICA).
