Kitty Wales, 1997
Steel and tin

Direct observation of nature is an important part of Kitty Wales’ work. This sculpture is modeled after the Caribbean Reef Shark because Wales is attracted to the shark’s fluidity, streamlined shape, and graceful lines.

Wales works in Belfast, Maine. She received a MFA in Sculpture from the University of Arizona, and a BFA in Sculpture and Art Education from Boston University. She has taught sculpture and drawing in Colleges and Universities in and around New England and the Southwest, including as Assistant Professor and Senior Lecturer in Sculpture at Boston University for over 25 years.
