I need to make things. More specif­i­cal­ly, I need to make things from stone. The stone I am most drawn to work with are the many beau­ti­ful alabasters. My work is about me pro­duc­ing – mak­ing some­thing – very inti­mate­ly with my own intel­li­gence, cre­ativ­i­ty, and phys­i­cal strength. My work is also about the stone. It’s a “give and take” thing with the stone. It’s a chal­lenge to bring out the beau­ty of the stone, to show­case the col­ors, grain, and amaz­ing for­ma­tions with­out over­pow­er­ing them with my ideas. I try to sculpt and carve the stone to both reflect my expe­ri­ences and ideas while giv­ing the stone its own voice. I know I have suc­ceed­ed in this goal when I watch some­one approach my pieces for the first time and they might utter a slight gasp or com­ment and then they are com­pelled to reach out to touch the piece. That is my moment of success![/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=“Artist Bio” tab_id=“1556904212576-a00267d3-de6ecfc7-1e2fbf04-4ffa4e7c-dd8b”][vc_column_text]Stacy is a native of Belleville, Illi­nois and attend­ed The Uni­ver­si­ty of Tul­sa where she earned a Bach­e­lor of Sci­ence Degree in Chem­i­cal Engi­neer­ing and a qui­et inter­est in three-dimen­sion­al art. While pur­su­ing her chem­i­cal engi­neer­ing career with East­man Chem­i­cal Com­pa­ny and rais­ing her three chil­dren, she became a self-taught nat­u­ral­ist and sought cre­ative out­lets. A few years before leav­ing her engi­neer­ing career in 2001, she began some inde­pen­dent study and prac­tice in the field of stone carv­ing and sculp­ture. She has since attend­ed var­i­ous work­shops includ­ing those of sculp­tor Bobbe Gen­try. In addi­tion, she was men­tored by mas­ter sculp­tor Bill Snow. Sta­cy has been a full time sculp­tor since 2001. Sta­cy cur­rent­ly works from her stu­dio in Longview, Texas.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=“CV” tab_id=“1556904212591–5cf4ad24-124fcfc7-1e2fbf04-4ffa4e7c-dd8b”][vc_column_text]Shows
