I live within a creative spirit that seeks expression through
sculpting portraits of people.
Why I sculpt: We live within a creative environment, which is
moving all of the time. Sometimes it seems like an unreal place.
We seek to make known things that are hidden from the natural
eyes... spirit things.
Spirit is the mystery of creation where all around us we breathe
it in and we are unaware....
But when awareness comes artists through the ages have sought
expression ... mysteries of creation in time and in
space....sometimes in peace, and sometimes, in deep anguish.
Things that are unseen, soaring, moving our spirits to new
heights of unfailing love. A portrait bust is an answer to
life...yes, my spirit has been a part of this great creation.
This is why we travel to the Louvre in Paris, the Vatican in
Rome, the Guggenheim in New York and to other great museums of
art... to witness.
