Take advantage of this rare opportunity to learn about the process of creating bronze sculptures directly from the artist. Josie received a BA in Fine Arts from Chatham University in Pittsburgh, then began her studies of three-dimensional art in 1976 at the Johnson Atelier in Princeton, NJ. In the ensuing years, she trained in the process of bronze foundry at Rutgers College and stone carving with hand tools at the Princeton Art Association. More recently Josie attended a carving symposium in Colorado to learn techniques employed in carving with power tools. Several times a year, she travels to Rutland, Vermont to attend workshops and carve at the Carving Studio and Sculpture Center quarry located there.

Josie’s work has been featured in many solo and juried exhibitions, mainly in New England and the mid-Atlantic region. One piece, a bust of a newborn child, was chosen for inclusion in an exchange exhibition in Moscow, Russia. Her impressive list of awards includes those from the CT Women Artists Association, Phillip Mill Patrons’ Award in PA, the Liskin Award, the Isenberg Award, the DeBellis and Richman Awards at the Salmagundi Club in NYC, and the Montana Memorial Award at the Hudson Valley Art Association. Most recently, Josie won awards in 2015 at juried exhibits in New Britain, Connecticut and at the Fells Historic Estate and Gardens in New Hampshire.

Josie’s work is part of many private and public collections, including Goodwin College in East Hartford, Connecticut, Planned Parenthood of Pennsylvania, and St. Paul’s Church in Chatham, New Jersey. Josie and her husband split their time between homes in Glastonbury and Center Harbor, New Hampshire.
