Lifecasting Artist Peny Wallace

If realism is what you are after, we suggest Peny Wallace, whose three dimensional portraits of the human form are so life-like that they simply stop viewers in their tracks. That’s because Peny uses human beings as molds for her plaster castings. But there’s true art in the way she creates her impressions.
