Janet Handler-Began her career in art as a painter, but in the 1970's turned to work in three dimensions. Since then she has worked as a sculpture, producing graceful and dynamic table-sized sculptures in stone and wood. Ms. Handler was a receipient of a merit scholarship at New York City's Art Students League, whereshe has studied for many years. She is presently Director of Sculpture for Audubon Artists. She is written up in Who's Who in American Art. Her carvings, in such material as limestone, alabaster, marble, rosewood, tupolo, mahogany, cedar, combine the primordial power of primitive icons with the contemporary look of modern minimalism, exploiting the natural properties of their varying material to emphasize their graceful flow of the line and balanced distribution of volume. Aesthetically satisfying from any angle, they have monumental quality despite their relatively small size. And expressed, as the artist has written,"the full range of feminine energy and flow."
