Art has been part of my life from childhood. I have found that the creative process balances the stresses of this world. I have continued to use art to reflect the wonder of the world around us. I have been sculpting since college in various mediums. When I begin a piece, I often do not know what the end result will be. The beauty of the natural world inspires much of the focus of the sculptures. I find sculpting to be a meditative experience that allows me to immerse myself totally in my work, while creating something that others may enjoy.

4” H x 7” W x 6” D Brazilian soapstone The fleeting connection of mother to child is reflected in this sculpture of an adult and young bear. The two bears were carved from one stone and are held together by a narrow stone connection, reflective of the need for eventual separation of the cub when she must become an adult. The connection still exists but only for the moment. Life is full of connections we have with others. Many last a lifetime, but many fade as time passes. Price – 350.00 --
