Featured Artist Jennifer Lynn Pratt


Jennifer Lynn Pratt is the next artist I am featuring. She is one of my sister artists from my WWAO World Wide Women Artists Online Group, who is in the WWAO May showcase that I am hosting on my website.

From her Bio:

"I'm an artist from Springfield, MO. My first love when it comes to artwork is sculpture. I also do drawings (pencil, charcoal, some mixed media), digital art, and photography. Horse and wildlife sculptures are my main emphasis; occasionally I do some figurative artworks.

I create my sculptures from clay because of the exceptional attributes of this medium. Clay is an inviting, earthy material; it’s also quite durable. It’s perfectly suited to figurative sculptures because of the wide range of emotion and movement that can be captured. A finished clay sculpture is unique from other sculptures - when you touch the surface, your hand follows a path that was not created by a tool, or by machine, or transferred from another medium; it’s the exact paths and grooves that the artist’s hands created.

Along with my finished artworks website (jenpratt.com), I also have a site devoted to clay sculpture and horse art demos, www.jenpratt.com/clay_sculpture/index.php Here you can find information for building sculptures out of clay, relative measurements for the horse, etc.

I've also started a website with articles & tips for creating an art website, including layout, taking good images, building a light box to take better images, etc. Equus Studio now also provides cheap web hosting and web design. Check out www.jenpratt.com/Art_Website/index.php for more info.

Of course, sculpting & drawing; gardening and growing tropicals (especially orchids - some of my photography comes from my own orchid collection); running; playing the piano."
I hope you enjoyed learning about this incredible artist, Jennifer Pratt, as much as I enjoyed sharing with you.
Have a wonderful and Blessed day,
Brenda

My sister loved horses she studied them and drew them herself . At one time she owned 100 ceramic horses it was a beautiful collection.
