“Art has always been a significant part of my life. It has given me a means of expression for life experiences and the satisfaction and joy of creating something with my hands. Narrative, symbolic, or spiritual my ceramic sculptures bring to mind the forms and textures of plants, earth, or water. Sometimes incorporating human or animal subjects they may take on a more emotional persona.”
Denise’s piece “All Their Prayers Surround Her” will be featured in Art for Life on September 15. See more of her work at deniseromecki.com.
