ARTISTIC STATEMENT

 

                   Deidre seeks to explore and express the magic that is unique in three dimensional art. Her primary inspiration is her love and interest in the human form. She has created sculptures in stone, wood, metal, and clay utilizing representational, stylized, and abstracted art forms.  Sculpting is the best way for her to share her ideas, emotions, and affirmation of the human experience.
