“My sculptures celebrate the attraction, fascination, and affection we have for the animals in our lives. I particularly love horses, birds and wolves for their beauty, spirit and symbolism. A painter turned sculptor, my animals are each glazed lovingly with rich color that compliments the various textures stamped or formed on the surface. I have been a professional artist for over 30 years! My message is really very simple. It is all about the connections we all share as humans. The placement of tiny birds and nest on a horses’ back is a metaphor for shelter, compassion, home and family. Ravens resting on top of a wolf speak of reaching across barriers and forming alliances with those different than ourselves. The animals I sculpt are chosen for their beauty, symbolism, and power to inspire. Color and texture along with strong or dramatic composition make my style distinct.” – Michelle MacKenzie
