Nancy Rieke

As the daughter of an artist, I have been sculpting and painting since my early childhood. I used to save the red wax on the outside of Gouda cheese and sculpted horses, dogs, cats, and ballerinas. The underside of my elementary school desk was a great hiding place for my creations and stuck well so I was able to play with it during class. More »

I have always been a social and academic achiever with a strong work ethic. Following six years of formal fine art training at the University of Minnesota and the University of Wisconsin, I was well prepared for my profession. I have studied the Masters’ works at museums in Paris, London, Amsterdam, and many major cities in America, Canada and Mexico.

I enjoy sculpting all living things. My emphasis is currently on life size equine and human forms. Earlier works include wildlife, dogs, dancers and bronze portraits. As you can see from my body of work, detail, accuracy and refinement are qualities that make my work recognizable. Because of this, my sculpture has been well received and enthusiastically collected ever since it was first shown in 1987. My work is collected internationally.

Honors given to my work include:
Best of Show, Beverly Hills, CA May 1988
Sculpture awards of 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, Beverly Hills, CA 1988-2000
Best of Show, Pacific Palisades, CA 1989

Notable collections include:

Wrigley Astaire Hearst-Boudjaktgi Valerie Harper
Bob Magnus Fujita Jim Nabors Wayne Newton
