Ms. Kelsey appears to be one of the most successful sculptors of my generation - born in 1941 -- graduated from art school in 1964 -- and finding a niche in designing collectable figurines for Royal Copenhagen. She's also collected by the Hirshorn Museum and the Hakone Open-Air museum (which is a place I'd like to see someday)
She specializes in dancers -- and the above sketch is my favorite of what I found on her site, http://www.kelseysculpture.com
There are two (among many) reasons to make bad figure sculpture --- there's the big market for cute -- and the big market for wax-museum realism --- and she has not been able to completely avoid them --- but it seems like Degas is her hero -- and he's a good person to follow (even if -- well -- he's not really a sculptor)
She's got the idea of design -- but like so much of American figure sculpture -- I think she feels the human body as more dramatic than beautiful - so cute little ballerinas might not have been the best subject for her.
