The World's Women On-Line!

Waters received her BA from Stanford University, California. When creating sculptures in wood and marble, she strives for the qualities of strength, gracefulness, sensuousness, and elegance. Three of the five senses- sight, sound, and touch- come together in her current series of sculptures which are so large that the viewer walks inside for a multidimensional experience. Her works involve research into other cultures and other times, as well as our own, in a search for the universal elements that reach the core of all beings.

Her selected solo exhibitions include: Seipp Gallery, Palo Alto, California, 1994-'95; SOMAR Gallery, San Francisco, 1994; Creative Arts Center, Sunnyvale, 1989; Coastal Arts League Museum, Half Moon Bay, 1988; John Gualbert Gallery, San Francisco, 1988; 1870 Gallery, Belmont, 1987; PARTA Gallery, San Mateo, 1984; Manor Gallery, Belmont, 1979; Gallery House, Palo Alto, 1962 and '78; John Pence Gallery, San Francisco, 1977; Art League of Northern Virginia, Alexandria, 1974; and Barrios Gallery, Sacramento, 1964-'70.
