Rosalind Cook (b. 1946)  Children >>

Born in Lima, Peru, Rosalind spent her early childhood in an isolated community high in the Andes on a ranch managed by her father. This culture was conducive to creativity as well as giving Rosalind a love for varied peoples which are often evident in her bronze sculptures. Rosalind received a degree is Special Education for the Blind and Visually Impaired from the University of Texas in Austin. This training developed not only a love for children with special needs, but also a keen awareness of shape, form, and texture. Initially, sculpting remained only a hobby as she raised three children. She began casting works in bronze in the 1980s and knew it was a calling on her life. Quickly her career began to flourish through select gallery representations, shows, and notable public commissions for hospitals, libraries, parks, and corporate headquarters across the country. Teaching annually is a part of sharing her gifts as well as her personal growth. Rosalind began a foundation, "The Rosalind Cook Encouragement Award" which awards chosen public high school art teachers monies for art supplies and new projects in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Source
