Sailboat Sculptures

I am so excited to finally call myself an artist! I had the chance to create two pieces for a local project in Detroit Lakes, MN, called 150 Sails Up. To celebrate the city’s 150th anniversary this summer, the group created 150 sailboat sculptures that each feature a different work of piece by a local artist. The sculptures will be distributed around the community to enjoy sometime this summer.

Large Sailboat

I got to create a large sailboat that will be displayed at Dunton Locks County Park, which is just down the road from my workplace. I visit this park all the time, so I’m very excited to see my own artwork there soon! I was inspired by nature, particularly the changing seasons and how they each provide different opportunities for recreation.

Small Sailboat

I also created a smaller sailboat that will hopefully be available for purchase in one of the shops downtown this summer. This one was inspired by some of my favorite outdoors spots to read!
