I feel very blessed to have been given the ability to create a work of art out of a lump of clay with my own two hands. To sculpt the human form that portrays a message that can evoke a passionate response from the viewer is a precious gift, of which I am eternally grateful. The desire I have with the forms I create is to continue studying the many emotions of mankind and capture the spirit of them in my work that would touch the viewer to their very soul. It would make my life's mission on earth meaningful to know I have touched and enhanced another person's life through my art.
