Wouterina has been a working artist in various media since 1969. In 1995, she gave up the security of a full-time job to pursue current projects and workshops. She is working on life-size concrete mosaic statues in the tradition of American outdoor folk art.
Her inspiration for these statues comes both from growing up on her parents' coffee and rubber plantation in the midst of the Indonesian jungle and also from her daily experiences living on an old farmstead in America's dairy state. Her love for the country and gardening and my passion for creating environments has guided her to create outdoor rooms with concrete figures that light up walkways to fountains, animals and human-shaped birdhouses or benches.
