Joy Kroeger Beckner
Joy Kroeger Beckner is inspired by sensuous shapes of skin, bone and muscle. She models clay or wax into classical forms, which are then cast into bronze. She is thrilled to make something move in-the-round bringing smiles, giggles or tears to the eyes of those who see and touch her work. She first showed in a national competition in 1996. Her bronze dachshunds have earned numerous awards, including the National Sculpture Society Silver Medal and six Best-in-Shows. Purchase awards have placed four of her dachshund works in three public collections, including the American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog, in her hometown, St. Louis, MO.
