Houston, Texas Studio

Emotion and Gesture- In sculpture, painting and drawing.

I’m so glad to be a part of the opening sessions and workshops for the Lone Star Art Guild Convention, May 20th. I look forward to meeting some new creative friends. For those of you who don’t know me, I am a master sculptor with a studio in Houston, Texas.

We all create art to initiate an emotional involvement. It may start off as our own emotional investment, but we eventually entice the viewer into a similar relationship. I have studied the emotional aspect of art over the years and have come up with some wonderful things to share. I also feel that a great deal of emotion comes from the gesture. Is gesture just figurative? Not always, a tree can have a gesture, as well as a still life.

In this workshop we will examine this simple aspect of emotion and gesture in art as well as take time to create our own emotional investment into a 3d form with clay. Let’s start off the convention being creative. I look forward to meeting you all.

See you Friday evening 7:30-9:30 PM at the Lone Star Art Guild. Check the schedule for the location within the convention center.
