Her most recent passion has been sculpting the heads and faces of Asian children with remarkable character and a sense of compassion and engagement. Her inspiration this art began when one of her friends adopted a Chinese daughter. Scarlett created a lifelike sculpture of the young girl, prompting her to seek out other Asian children to sculpt. She found inspiration from photographs of Tibetan child monks and nuns.
"I never tire of capturing the sweet softness of their physical features and inner spirit," she said. Scarlett, who has a degree in art education, also throws pottery, paints wall murals and billboards.
