Zaudke Sculpture – R. Zaudke Wilkins, artist. See a gallery of works on the website www.zaudkesculpture.com and Like the Facebook page. Wilkins says about her works, “Nature is my muse. Opposing textures, the tilt of a head, or simply the way a jaw and neck join. These captured moments of nature and everyday life is what I strive to create. Different aspects of each animal enchant me. Most often I find it is texture, mass and the relationship of environment and animal which triggers the creative impulse. I am constantly striving to capture the essence of what enchants me most about horses.”
