Sculpture of a bull dog

Graced by Art .com


Patty Palenschat creates a wide range of realistic sculpture and realistic paintings of: people, the human figure, and animals. Few artists can capture the look of a person with that recognizable life, breathing just within the surface of the canvas.  With many years of study and experience, combined with a sensitivity to the appearance and personality of her subject, Patty is able to produce incredible vibrance in her portraits.


Patty’s sculpture captures the essences of life, the God-given joy of living, tender moments, or simple peaceful repose.  Each piece speaks differently to the individual beholding it, gracing their life by its presence.
