How fortunate I am to be alive at this special time on earth. To be able to sculpt and create beauty wherever I am, truly makes my heart sing.
For me the process starts with a block of clay, a turntable and just my fingers. As the neck and shoulders become recognizable and a face appears, even the slightest change in light or angle reveals a personality unseen before. It is at these times I feel moved to capture these angelic and peaceful image on film. So my work has evolved to include photography, creating endless expressions of their beauty.
Born in Germany, I emigrated with my family to Canada when I was eleven years of age. After raising my two daughters and a ten year modeling career, I decided to relocate to Santa Fe, New Mexico the summer of 2000.
My photographs and sculptures can be found in private collections worldwide. The bronze sculptures are available in limited editions of nine (9) and are further identified with an imprint of my family’s crest: Baroness Luise Von Grotthuss.
