DIMENSIONS 2015 – Meet the Artists – Maria Saracino

Check out Polymer Clay Figurative Artist, Maria Saracino and her realistic yet whimsical characters.

How long have you been creating?  I’ve been working in this medium for 20 years. I discovered polymer clay in the mid 1990’s when it was just beginning to be used as a fine art medium. I have an art background in graphic design and worked in advertising for the first half of my career.

What inspires you to do what you do?  I love creating. It’s a basic physical need for me. I love challenging myself not only with my art but also on a business level. It’s extremely satisfying when my audience connects with one of my culptures on a personal or familiar level.

My art reflects those moments. Through sculpture I capture candid snapshots of life’s simple pleasures. I want my audience to feel the connection to their own experience. My work is realistic with a touch of whimsy. I sculpt in polymer clay and use textiles, wood and resin to complete my sculptures. My biggest influence is Norman Rockwell.
