Kathie Bugajski's avatar Kathie Bugajski

My name is Kathie Bugajski painter and sculptor since I was a child really. I was given a chance to bloom in 2005 when I took my first college art class at Macomb Community College with Professor Daniel Rosbery. He gave me the confidence to paint. Professor Todd Mitchell gave me to tools to pursue sculpture and I've been at it ever since. I love the human figure and the way we have been created. Every part of our being has a purpose and works together for that purpose. I'm intrigued with the design of our bodies that shows there has been a higher power, God, involved in our creation. Marvelous! "Contemplation" was brought about from a woman named Rebecca. As she sat for me I watched her intently and could tell she was in another space in her mind as if she were contemplating something far from being with me. I hope you can see this in her as I endeavored to bring that forward as I sculpted her.
