“My fascination with cultures has always been a great motivation to explore. My hands, tools, and clay are where it all begins.”

About

 “Always thinking outside of the box… we are all  hard-wired and that is my wiring.” 

Stacy’s appreciation of art began at the age of 17  when she had the opportunity to travel and reside in  five foreign countries over the next seven years.  Working the runways and modeling allowed her to  spend most of her spare time in museums and art  galleries around the world. These seven years proved  to be much more than she would have ever thought at  the time.

“What I learned through my travels I could have  never learned or experienced in a classroom or from  books. I ate the food, spoke the language, but most  importantly I was given the opportunity to ‘absorb’  some of the greatest works of art in history. I often  refer to this time as my college years. ” 

Fast-forward 10 years…. Stacy began her own  venture into the art world. As a self-taught artist and  a single mother of three young children Stacy wanted  to work at home. This is when she discovered the  world of porcelain doll making. With measurable  success this turned out to be only a stepping-stone on  the path to becoming an Artist … a very daunting  thought with three babies at her feet.

During a signing event at an Art gallery in Dallas  Texas Stacy met the world-renowned sculptor  Giuseppe Armani. This meeting turned into a five hour  sculpting lesson with the Artist after she was invited  by Armani to step behind the roped off area where he  shared some of his sculpting tips. “This was my aha  moment! The experience completely changed my  approach and understanding of my talent as well as  my future endeavors. I still have the small clay heart  that Giuseppe made and signed for me and I will  cherish it forever.”

In 1997 Stacy began to work as the creator and  artist of a home décor line of sculpture titled ‘The  Maasai Collection’. The collection went on to sell in  over 21 countries over the next seven years. A lot of  travel and many miles behind her Stacy wanted to be  more at home so she ended her relationship with the  company. Now I was able to follow my own ideas and  explore different opportunities to express my ideas  and vision thru my art.

In 2005 Stacy began to dip her toes into the world of  fine art bronze. Creating her first pieces of bronze  using the lost-wax process this proved to be a very  challenging medium yet exciting. Than came the art  shows as well as sales and this path was well on its  way. Then as we all remember oh so well the  economy crashed!

Having to wear several hats at the time Stacy went  back to home design and production for a design  team in Los Angeles Ca. Far from the art world yet  still able to be creative this past eight years has been  long and hard but has been an incredible time for  reflection. After the loss of her father in 2013 Stacy  moved back to Loveland Colorado to be there for her  mother. As time has healed after the crash of 2008  she has began to create again. As the Rocky  Mountains are now my backdrop and I am able to let  my hands begin the conversation.

In 2001 the United Nations Secretary addressed the  Florence Biennale with this thought… “Artist’s have a  special role to play in the global struggle for peace. At  their best, artists speak not only to people; they speak  for them. Art is a weapon against ignorance and  hatred and an agent of public awareness…. Art opens  new doors for learning, understanding, and peace  among people and nations.”  This very powerful message still rings true in my  heart and soul and I hope to continue to create and  open those doors. “ Art speaks volumes for those  without a voice in this ever-changing world we all find  ourselves apart of.”
