About Denisa Prochazka: Denisa Prochazka is an award winning artist living in Ottawa, Canada. She is a classically trained figurative sculptor with a passion for portrait sculpture and clay reliefs. She graduated from OCAD University in Toronto and completed her post-graduate studies in Florence, Italy.
Born in the Czech Republic, she grew up playing in her mother’s ceramic studio. Her early childhood experience and love of clay led her back to this medium where she felt a complete freedom of expression through its tactile movement and flexibility, expressing feminine softness and high level of control.

Manhattan Arts International has awarded her with the Featured Artist Art Award, Second Place Special Recognition Arts Award, and an Award of Excellence.
In 2020 her sculpture “Warrior’s Heart Wish” was selected by the American Artists Professional League for the 92nd Grand National Exhibition in which she received an award.
Denisa has also been selected for exhibitions presented by such prestigious organizations such as American Artists Professional League and Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club, both in NYC, NY.

Denisa’s Artist’s Statement: Many of my clay sculptures depict female subjects and feminine forms from my own creative visions, to empower and inspire the feminine balance in this world. The need for creation became reinforced with the birth of my own child and the desire to heal, protect and empower.
My goal is to bring my art forward to public spaces so that passersby can find peace, beauty and healing connection for a moment in time in their life’s journey. I strongly believe in creating healing artwork that has the power to transform people’s lives. Some of my sculptures are created for Women’s Shelters and Auctions to support an Orphanage in Africa.
