“I hope for years to come my collectors will find themselves and their family reflected in my work,” says American artist Yenny Cocq.
Yenny Cocq lives and works in Santa Fe, NM, United States. In 2008, she began seriously pursuing sculpture and bronze after working for more than two decades as a printmaker and painter. Since she was a child, her dream was to work in bronze sculpture. Her studio is bustling with custom orders and family portraits from miniature to monumental sizes. She exhibits her artwork in physical and online galleries worldwide. It is found in private and corporate collections around the world.

A self-taught artist & other influences
Yenny Cocq is predominantly self-taught but has had many interesting artist friends and exposure to a multitude of techniques. Moreover, her grandmother, high school art teachers, and her uncle had a great influence on her. “My uncle was an accomplished goldsmith master and I spend many afternoons in his studio watching and learning,” says Yenny.
Living in Santa Fe for 30 years gave her exposure to the amazing artists and galleries in the creative town. “I have been an established artist in Santa Fe for about 20 years,” she adds.
Scandinavian figurative sculpture
Yenny creates figurative sculptures that are modern and Scandinavian in style. Right now she is working on a life-size sculpture to be placed in downtown Evergreen, Colorado. It has been a long process but several sculptures of that size have been placed internationally.
Her concept of “Build your family” translates to various sizes from miniature to 42 inches. Over the last year, Yenny has also worked on a jewelry line bringing her back to her uncle’s studio and what he had taught her.
Sculptures for generations
Yenny believes that it’s important to spread love and her sculptures are all about love and family. She hopes her collectors will find themselves and their families reflected in her work. “I have collectors adding more family members over time and I promise to keep making the little sculptures for generations,” says Yenny.
