nancy tuttle: major in pre-med + minor in art = stunning figurative sculpture

Nancy Tuttle’s carved wood sculptures and masks are haunting, powerful, poignant. A fascination with the human body led Tuttle to major in pre-med in college, and her life-long interest in art influenced her decision to minor in art. My guess is that she didn’t know at the time that the two would combine so beautifully in her work as a figurative sculptor.

“When I made the decision to become a professional artist my goal was to create art that would touch the soul and evoke powerful emotion from the viewer. Whatever the medium, the style or the subject matter of a work of art, in the end, intense emotion is always my desired affect and true creation.”
