Bobbie Carlyle would like to personally welcome you to her official new site. Bobbie could be called the quintessence of a sculptor of our age, crossing two millennia and several decades. Bobbie collects ideas and inspiration from personal experience, her seven children and many grandchildren. Bobbie has dedication and love for art and sculpture and this led her to earn her degree in Fine Arts from Brigham Young University while raising all seven children.
Bobbie lives life to the fullest. She sees the positive in every situation and learns from it. Bobbie's inner strength, depth and intelligence are reflected in her bronze sculptures. She has studied under many of today's notable artists and takes influence from Leonardo Bistolfi, Solon and Gutzon Borglum, Daniel Chester French, and Michaelangelo. The result is a style that ranges from classical to art nouveau to contemporary, and always pure Bobbie.
The Essence of Bobbie Carlyle
The essence of the sculpture of Bobbie Carlyle is captured in the words "bold strength" and "provocative intelligence". She has established herself in fine art, particularly during the past decade. She creates sculptures in bronze, all executed with imagination and vitality. Her subjects range from figurative to liturgical, wildlife to western, in sizes from maquette to monumental. She excels at getting to the crux of the moment, the inspiration behind the idea, and presenting that in her own dynamic way.
Perhaps her best known work is her bronze piece titled "Self Made Man" depicting man carving himself and his future from the raw stone from which he emerges.
Bobbie Carlyle has created some of the most compelling figurative work in the art world today, work that captures the essence of her subject. Indeed, it is work that carries a strong psychological element: dealing with the full spectrum and complexity of emotion, the struggles and triumphs of life.
