TRISH PLEASANT Key West Artist
I grew up 60 miles south of New Orleans in the swamp, drawing, sculpting, and observing everything. I pursued several unsatisfying careers until stage 3 cancer changed my life for the better. Realizing that life is short, determined that I would live my life according to my own plan. I fully committed to my chosen life when i quit my job to build "Boudless," a larger than life Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Art in Public Places sculpture. That marked many personal firsts for me as an artist, as a woman, and as a person. My sculptures tell stories of real life : a little training her puppy, an old man teaching his grandson, an endangered animal living life free. I am proud and honored when I see faces of people as they experience the emotions of my stories in GFRC concrete.
Artist’s Note: Boundless forced my hand and made me turn pro. Even though I had depended on the money from my art for many years, it was a huge moment for me as an artist when I quit my other job to build full time. It marked a commitment to build as many sculptures and tell as many stories as I can in the twenty or so years left to me.
