ANNE E BRUCE
I have spent the last thirty years juggling career and family working in film, honing fine art skills in painting and drawing, teaching seniors, gallery shows, all while managing to stay married and successfully shepherd two daughters through college. This has been an uphill but largely rewarding climb. Since moving full-time to Taos from New York three years ago, I have gone three-dimensional, embracing clay wholeheartedly. It’s a big, new world to be retired and learn a new skill. Working in ceramics I am able to bring general art knowledge and ability to bear on a new medium previously unfamiliar to me. It’s very rewarding to be able to see and manipulate all sides of an image and realize its functional or sculptural aspect. I guess that is proof maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks.
