I created the sculpture, GRACE, because of my concern for the thousands of women and children who go without life's basic needs. I wanted to help these families. I decided that 10 percent of the sales price of GRACE would be donated to the FINCA, which provides micro-loans to women of poor families to start their own businesses.

“I have always enjoyed watching people. Their posture and gestures give non-verbal cues about them. One can imagine what is happening in their lives by watching how they walk, stand, hold their head and move their hands. These observations have found their way into my work.” I prefer simplicity and ambiguity in my sculptures’ faces. Planes and angles portray the basic elements without individual characteristics. I hope this encourages the viewer to bring his or her experiences and interpretation to the sculpture. I weld my original sculptures in steel and then have copies cast in bronze. I am drawn to the strength, flexibility and luster of metal. As I work, cutting, hammering and welding, the personality of the subject emerges. I strive to impart a sense of inner strength and grace in my sculptures. To see and purchase other works of art by this sculptor visit: jeannineyoung.com.
