I first met Tanya when I was just starting out with my
life-casting. I had a pocket full of dreams and little else. I had no
sculpture portfolio to show. I had been a commercial artist for the last
several years. After sitting down and talking with Tanya, she decided to believe in
me and my dreams.
me through my most difficult learning experiences when the alginate was not my
friend. With her patience and understanding kindness I gradually learned just how
to create a life-cast and my art grew in return. I thank her for my whole beginning.
great to share the recognition of my hard work with Tanya, when it all finally paid off
with my first show at a Soho gallery in NY. Tanya arrived, fashionably late, dressed
in a gorgeous black evening gown. All heads turned as she gracefully entered the
gallery. It was wonderful to watch the amazed look of recognition cross a
patrons face as he looked at Tanyas sculpture and then back to her,
unbelievably "live and in person". Again, I thank Tanya for believing in
my art before it even existed.
