b.1945 - 2019
I am a native of Lawton, Oklahoma, where several of my ancestors settled before statehood. My husband’s military career enabled us to live and visit many places in the US and overseas. Moving every few years across country, overseas, and back with children born along the way, has contributed to an exciting and challenging life.
I particularly enjoyed our tour in Turkey, which gave me the opportunity to view the classical sculpture of ancient Greece and increased my interest in this art form. Although I have dabbled in art most of my life and have always appreciated three-dimensional form, this experience solidified what has become my raison d’Ãªtre.
For the last fifteen years, my family and I have lived in Colorado and now consider Monument, a small town north of Colorado Springs, home. Since settling here, I have practiced my art, studying with several excellent sculptors at the Fechin Institute in Taos, New Mexico, the Scottsdale Artist School in Scottsdale, Arizona and the Loveland Academy of Fine Art in Loveland, Colorado.
I want to create sculpture with which people can identify, to provide a catalyst for reflections and pleasant memories. I believe that we need beauty in our lives for emotional and social well-being. My goal is to create art that has beauty and integrity in the craftsmanship and design.
At this time of my life, children are my preferred subjects. I have been a schoolteacher; have worked with children in volunteer activities; and have children and grandchildren of my own; it’s normal that I feel a connection with them. These years of observation have enabled my work to capture some of the naturalness and spontaneity of childhood.
During this time of crisis, when our lives are upended daily as new information is available, John Marzolf and the staff at the Broadmoor Galleries want to extend our heartfelt gratitude for your partnership and loyalty. We are reminded of our strength in the community during this moment and we are truly grateful for our extended family. We have been contacted by many of our artists, who are also concerned about our current events and they’ve decided to lower their prices during these uncertain times. We know that as the world seems to stand, still life continues to happen - birthdays, anniversaries, Easter and Mother’s Day all will still occur and these lower prices will ease the strain at this time. Inquire about specific pieces and Krista or Jamie will let you know the temporality lowered prices.
Currently, our physical locations will not be open to the public. We hope to reopen with the Broadmoor Resort and Properties on May 22nd for Memorial Day Weekend. Until then we plan to be fully functional through our website, social media, email, phone calls, and texts. Explore our website’s new chat feature for immediate contact with an associate. If you have any questions about our pieces or artists please reach out. Our associates are able to respond to any of your inquiries and will do so promptly.
We are able to ship products directly to you or arrange a safe pick up at an offsite location. If there is anything we’ve missed or any other way we can help you please let us know!
We’ll get through this together. Sincerely,
John Marzolf and the Broadmoor Galleries Staff
