Artist Statement of Pam Foley

I have been a free-lance professional sculptor for two decades. I specialize in abstract reinterpretations of the human form, creating pieces that reflect the themes of solitude and fleeting thoughts or emotions. In my studio I work in clay and plaster to produce original sculptures from which I make moulds and resin casts. Several works are now available in bronze. I treat the casts with innovative and unique finishes. I also teach life sculpture classes part-time, offer sculpture workshops, and am very active in art communities. Current Projects Multi media project Routes of Sorrow (sculpture, paintings, dried flowers). Click here for more details Produce and sell limited edition sculpture Tutor, Life Sculpture courses Workshops on Modeling the Head in Clay, Pit-firing, Mould-making and Casting
