The French Angel

Katie Ann Baugher

Personal Statement

When I started this program I knew I wanted to use Maurice Tillet to sculpt. I didn’t know then, or until I was well into the process just how much of a head he had. He was an amazingly intelligent and kind man in his life. Due to a pituitary disease, his features grew exponentially. Modeling his head posed many challenges and I had to adapt the form given to accommodate his extra large head. I learned so much during this process, not only about my abilities but about this man who I would have loved to meet.
