Phoenix Artist Constance McBride: 100 Creatives

Phoenix is brimming with creativity. And every other year, we put the spotlight on 100 of the city's creative forces. Leading up to the release of this year's Best of Phoenix issue, we're profiling 100 more. Welcome to the 2014 edition of 100 Creatives. Up today: 47. Constance McBride.

Time inspires Constance McBride.

When the sculptor lived on the East Coast, she says, she had a tough time finding her voice and figuring out her aesthetic. "Now after being here 12 years," she says. "I've come to realize that this gorgeous Southwest desert I live in is another significant influence on the work and it seems to have really tied things together for me," McBride says. "The effects time has on our bodies and my evolving emotions concerning them are what drive the direction of my work."
