BARBARA FRENCH DUZAN

“I cannot remember a time when I was not interested in art, although I was sidetracked from it long enough to earn a BS in Chemistry/Biology from Western Washington University.”  Many years ago Duzan’s art moved from two-dimensional to three-dimensional Bronze sculpture, depicting animals with respect and sometimes a touch of whimsy. Being a Native of the Pacific Northwest, Duzan attributes her interest in birds as subjects in part to her interest in flying. She is a licensed instrument rated pilot who often flew her seaplane in the San Juan Islands.

“My goal is to captivate the viewer with the gestures and expressions that make each subject seem to be unique while at the same time representing their species as a whole.”
