The essence of the sculpture of Bobbie Carlyle is captured in the word’s bold, strength and provocative intelligence. She has established her prominence in the sculpture world during the past two decades. Her sculptures in bronze and stone are all executed with imagination and vitality, in subjects ranging from wildlife to western to figurative. Ms. Carlyle has created some of the most compelling figurative work in the art world today, work that causes the viewer to look into themselves with the several layers of meaning. Indeed, it is work that carries a strong psychological appeal; dealing with the full spectrum, complexity of emotion, struggles and triumphs of life. She has studied under many of the notable artists of today and also takes influence from Solon and Gutzon Borglum, Rodin, Daniel Chester French and Michelangelo. Further, her own life struggles with its hard-won insights, and her seven children have been inspiration to many of her works.
Bobbie lives life to the fullest. She sees the positive in every situation and learns from it. Ms. Carlyle received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. She has taught numerous workshops which include teaching at the Colorado Institute of Art. Her works are displayed internationally in numerous public and private collections in reliefs, smaller works, life size fountains and monuments. Currently she is working with architects, landscape architects, land developers and art representatives on numerous installations, commissioned pieces and fountains.
